In this activity you will compare the momentum of a system before and after an inelastic collision.
During remote teaching / distance learning (RT;DL), this PhET-fueled activity had to stand in for a more traditional conservation of momentum lab. With in-person learning, this serves as a nice precursor to the hands-on lab activity.
