Virtual Momentum Investigation.

Posted by Mr Mallon on October 7, 2013

Use the above momentum simulation to investigate the total momentum before and after the trolleys collide.

  1. Click on the different stacked trolleys to change the mass of each vehicle`s mass.
  2. Press the green triangle to play the simulation
  3. Download the investigation sheet here Momentum investigation sheets.

Think of an object`s momentum as how hard or easy it is to stop the object from moving. Obviously it is much harder to stop a slowly rolling car than it is to stop a fast moving football.

Momentum depends on the object`s mass and velocity.
