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.



Momentum is a vector quantity which has units daum_equation_1381173682367
