Product Description
This quiz or activity is appropriate for pre-AP and AP physics students. It takes about 20 minutes and I give it as a partner quiz so they can discuss it.

In movies, people are often blow back through a plate glass window when they are shot. The transfer of momentum from a bullet, while deadly, is very small. This quiz allows students to see how absurd glass breaking events like this are.

This includes a key.

Keywords: momentum, COM, COE, energy, kinetic, potential, recoil, elastic, inelastic, force, impact time.
