Momentum and Impulse
Momentum is mass in motion, and any moving object will have momentum.
Momentum = mass x velocity
p = mv
(The letter p represents momentum; ρ (Rho) represents density)
Meanwhile, an object’s change in momentum is its impulse.
Impulse = Change in momentum
Ft = mv – mu
Conservation of Momentum
The law of momentum conservation ca be stated as follows. For a collision between object 1 and object 2 in an isolated system, the total momentum of the two objects before the collision is equal to the total momentum of the two objects after the collision.
Total momentum before = total momentum after
