A 12 question assessment for basic understanding of conservation of momentum. Students calculate momentum including elastic and inelastic collisions, which include concepts of mass and velocity. Only basic understanding is assessed, calculators are not required.
Answer key and answer sheet included
This physics test on momentum and impulse uses word problems to assess the following:change of momentum, kinematics, dynamics, elastic and inelastic collisions, and vectors. Impulse and its relation to change inn momentum is also used in the test. The test is open ended and should probably take ab
Are your students having a difficult time solving problems determining whether a collision is inelastic or elastic? Use this download to help your students practice solving inelastic and elastic collision problems with these engaging worksheets!By completing this assignment, your students will be ab
Engage Science content is where science topics are brought to life like nowhere else! From social media profiles to activities this is an all-in-one solution to bring students into the most important topics science. In a Engage Science activity set you will receive:◈Google Slide Editable Presentati
This download includes a PowerPoint and lesson plan that covers:The theory of collisions, lined to conservation of momentum and energyIdea and slide to show an experiment to perform to examine inelastic theoryExample questions with solutionsThis is the fourth lesson from a series of five that are av
This is a very engaging hands on activity! You will need to have sets of two carts. The ones I use have a bouncy plunger on one of the sides of a cart, and the other has a strike plate, and then the other sides each have opposite sides of Velcro. The set up just need to be done so that one side boun
Using the free virtual conservation of momentum laboratory at GigaPhysics.com, students examine the characteristics of elastic, inelastic, and partially elastic collisions. Students perform the same calculations as they would with traditional air tracks and photogates, but without the cumbersome phy
Students investigate inelastic and elastic collisions using Vernier dynamic cart and track system. Students measure the velocity and mass of the carts to calculate the momentum before and after collision. Students will investigate how momentum is conserved in these 2 types of collisions. The lab i
This homework assess students understanding of elastic and inelastic collisions using the concept of conservation of momentum. Students calculate the mass and velocity of objects before and after they collide. For added fun - let students work together in "houses" to compete!Product Includes:6 Probl
This is a great lesson on elastic and inelastic collisions. After introducing the idea of momentum, students conduct a simulation on the physics classroom website, and then finally answer two check for understanding questions.I use this in my physics classroom for distant learning.
This lab exploratory activity includes:
a) Modeling elastic and inelastic collisions
b) Sketching momentum vs. time graphs (new in AP Physics 1)
c) Predicting behavior of a system of two objects after various motion arrangements.
Students solve physics problems dealing with momentum, impulse, inelastic, and elastic collisions. Instead of letters, the numbers fit together in a crossword puzzle.Great for review! My AP Physics students loved this activity. Includes answer key!
Momentum worksheet on collisions. Worksheet is sorted into elastic and inelastic collisions of varying difficulty. Students start out with a straightforward conservation of momentum elastic collision and work to more complex problems.
This lab introduces students to the concepts of elastic and inelastic collisions, and the Conservation of Momentum in these collisions. The students use a low-friction air track and the sleds that come with the accessories for the track, to collide the sleds elastically and inelastically using phot
Students will be categorizing the different types of collisions that have to do with conservation of momentum (elastic, inelastic, recoil). Not only will they identify practice problems, but also pictures, equations, and even definitions.Print on colored paper or cardstock and laminate for added dur
In this simulation students will investigate linear momentum with elastic collisions, inelastic collisions, and reverse inelastic collisions (explosions). I wrote this lab to replace my PhET linear momentum simulation as my computers no longer support Java and Flash. This simulation is written in
In this PhET simulation students observe the conservation of momentum in elastic and inelastic linear collisions. Conservation or loss of energy is emphasized. Please note that I limit my instruction in first-year physics to linear collisions only, but the simulation handles 2D collisions just fin
This worksheet is an interactive notes sheet on momentum, impulse, elastic, and inelastic collisions. Included in the notes are structured problems for the student to do, along with example problems for each major section. These example problems include step by step solutions including why each step
