Chapter 10 Momentum
  • Want to deal with more complicated systems
  • Collisions
  • Explosions
  • Newtons laws still work, but we need some new

(No Transcript)
Todays Lecture
  • Different style than in the textbook
  • Begin with a definition of Linear Momentum
  • Then show that conservation of momentum helps us
    solve certain types of problems
  • Things colliding
  • Things exploding

Definition of Linear Momentum
  • Vector equation!

Restating Newtons Second Law
  • The rate of change of momentum of an object is
    equal to the net force applied to it
  • If we exert a net force on a body, the momentum
    of the body changes

What if SF0?
  • If SF0, then dp/dt 0, ? p constant
  • Momentum doesnt change
  • momentum before momentum after

Conservation of Momentum
  • For a system, by Newtons laws, SF0
  • Conservation of Momentum
  • Sum of all Sum of
  • momentum before momentum after
  • True in X and Y directions separately!

Problem Solving
  • For Conservation of Momentum problems
  • Do X and Y Separately

So what?
  • Momentum is useful when we dont know anything
    about the forces
  • Examples from everyday life
  • When ice skating, if you push someone, why do you
    go backwards?
  • Why does a gun recoil when you shoot it?

Everyday Experience?
  • Question Why do you go backwards when you push
    someone on the ice?
  • Newtons Laws answer When you exert a force on
    another person, then, by Newtons law, the person
    exerts an equal and opposite force on you

Everyday Experience? Cont
  • Question Why do you go backwards when you push
    someone on the ice?
  • Momentum Conservation Answer
  • Before
  • The system starts with zero momentum (nobody is
  • After
  • The system ends with zero momentum. You and your
    friend move in opposite directions

Simple Gun Example
  • A gun of mass MG is sitting at rest with a bullet
    of mass MB inside it. You shoot the gun and the
    bullet comes out with a speed V at angle Q.
  • What is the recoil velocity of the gun?

Weird example
  • Ball of mass m is dropped from a height h
  • What is the momentum before release?
  • What is the momentum before it hits the ground?
  • Is momentum conserved?

What if we add the Earth?
  • What is the force on the ball?
  • What is the force on the earth?
  • Is there any net force in this system?
  • Is momentum conserved?
  • SF0, then dp/dt 0, ? p constant

Momentum for a system is Conserved
  • Momentum is ALWAYS conserved for a SYSTEM, you
    just have to look at a big enough system to see
    it correctly.
  • Not conserved for a single ball
  • A ball falling is not a big enough system. You
    need to consider what is making it fall.
  • Newtons Law For every action there is an equal
    and opposite reaction
  • Add up all the momentums in the problem
  • The forcer and the forcee

Energy and Momentum in Collisions
  • Definitions
  • Elastic collision kinetic energy is conserved
  • Inelastic collision kinetic energy is not
  • Momentum conserved?
  • Total Energy conserved?

Inelastic Collisions
  • By definition
  • Inelastic
  • mechanical energy not conserved
  • kinetic energy not conserved
  • Inelastic Example Two trains which collide and
    stick together

Colliding Trains 1 Dimension
  • The train car on the left, mass m1, is moving
    with speed Vo when it collides with a stationary
    car of mass m2. The two stick together.
  • What is their speed after the collision?
  • Show that this is inelastic

Ballistic Pendulum
  • A bullet of mass m and velocity Vo plows into a
    block of wood with mass M which is part of a
  • How high, h, does the block of wood go?
  • Is the collision elastic or inelastic?

Bottom line When to use Momentum
  • When you dont know the forces in the system
  • When you are studying all of the pieces of the
    system which are doing the forcing
  • Before and After Problems

Coming up

    havent finished them already

Next time
  • Exam coming up next time.
  • Here. Usual class time Covering
  • Exam 1 material, Chapter 3(9)
  • Chapter 4(1-8), Chapter 5(1-3)
  • Chapter 6(1-8), Chapter 7(1-4), Calculus 2

  • Must complete everything to Chap 7.
  • Reading for next lecture
  • Rest of Chapter 9 on Momentum
  • Reading was due today, but Ill grant an
    extension. Questions 1 14

Head On Collision
  • A ball of mass m1 collides head on (elastically)
    with a second ball at rest and rebounds (goes in
    the opposite direction) with speed equal to ¼ of
    its original speed.
  • What is the mass of the second ball m2?

Next time
  • Exam Thursday
  • Extra credit if you have 100s on all HWs, HW
    quizzes and math quizzes before the exam
  • Reading for Tuesday
  • Rest of Chapter 9 on Momentum

Two Balls Collide
  • Two billiard balls of equal and known mass m are
    traveling with known velocities V1 and V2. They
    collide elastically
  • What are the velocities after the collision?

A Ball collides with a Stationary Ball
  • We have two billiard balls of different and known
    masses m1 and m2. Ball one is traveling with
    known velocity V1. They collide elastically
  • What are the velocities after the collision?

Collisions and Impulse
Playing Pool 2 Dimensions
Before the collision, ball 1 moves with speed V1
in the x direction, while ball 2 is at rest. Both
have equal mass. After the collision, the balls
go off at angles Q and Q. What are v1 and v2
after the collision?
