Linear Momentum
• The linear momentum of an object of mass
m moving with a velocity v is defined as the
product of the mass and the velocity.

## Momentum is a vector; its direction is the same as the

direction of the velocity.
Example 1:
A 285 g ball falls vertically downward, hitting the floor with a
speed of 2.5 ms-1 and rebounding upward with a speed of
2.0 ms-1. Find the change in the ball’s momentum.

Solution 1:
 
p  mv
v(+ve)  
p  mv

p  m(v  u )
u(-ve) 
p  (0.285)(2.0  (2.5))

p  1.3 kgms1
Momentum and Newton’s
Second Law
Applying Newton’s Second Law for cases with constant
acceleration, we get

v  u mv  mu p
F  ma  m  
t t t
When the force, F acts over a short period of time
Δt, it produces a change in momentum:

J  Ft  mv  mu
Impulse = Change in momentum
IMPULSE
When a force F acts over a brief period of time Δt, it
produces a change in momentum.
F is called the
impulsive
force

t
Impulse ,J is equals to Impulse:
the force, F acting for a
small time interval t. II or
or JJ =
= FF tt
Impulse is a vector, in the same SI unit : N . s = kg . m/s
direction as the average force.
Impulse from a Varying Force
The force acting for a short interval is usually
not constant. So we use the average force.
J  Favg t  mv  mu
The average force can be thought of as
the constant force that would give the
same impulse to the object in the time
interval as the actual time-varying
force gives in the interval.

## • Impulse = area under F - Δt diagram.

= average force × time taken.
IMPULSE

Therefore, the
same change in
momentum may
be produced by a
large force acting
for a short time,
or by a smaller
force acting for a
longer time.
Example 2:
A 0.144 kg baseball is thrown towards the club at the speed of
43.0 m/s when it is hit softly with an average force of 6.50×103 N
for 1.30 ms. If we take the direction of the pitcher (who threw the
ball) as the positive x-direction, what is the final return speed of
the ball?

+
m = 0.144 kg

F= 6.50×103 N
+ v=?
t =1.3ms

## 1. Choose and label a positive direction.

2. A velocity is positive when with this direction and negative
when against it.
+
m = 0.144 kg
F= 6.50×103 N
u=- 43.0 m/s + V=?
t =1.3ms

Conservation of Linear
Momentum
The net force acting on an object is the rate of
change of its momentum:

## If the net force is zero, the momentum does not

change:
Example 3:
A honeybee with a mass of 0.150 g lands on one end of a
floating 4.75 g popsicle stick. After sitting at rest for a
moment, it runs toward the other end with a velocity v b
relative to the still water. The stick moves in the
opposite direction with a speed of 0.120 cms-1. What is
the velocity of the bee? (Let the direction of the bee’s
motion be the positive x direction.)

A Collision of Two

masses, resulting in a change in their velocities

 m1u1  m2u 2  m1v1  m2 v2

Momentum is conserved!
Types of Collisions
• Momentum is conserved in any collision.
• Inelastic collisions.
– Kinetic energy is not conserved
• Some of the kinetic energy is converted into other types of
energy such as heat, sound, work to permanently deform
an object
– Perfectly inelastic collisions occur when the objects
stick together
• Not all of the KE is necessarily lost
• Elastic collision.
– Both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved
• Actual collisions.
– Most collisions fall between elastic and perfectly
inelastic collisions
Inelastic Collisions
Inelastic collision:
- momentum is conserved
- kinetic energy is not
conserved

## Completely inelastic collision:

objects stick together afterwards: objects have a common
velocity after impact
Perfectly Inelastic Collisions
Collisions where two objects stick together
and have a common velocity vC after impact.

Example 4:
On a touchdown attempt, a 95.0 kg running back runs toward the
end zone at 3.75 ms-1. A 111 kg linebacker moving at 4.10 ms-1
meets the runner in a head-on collision. If the two players grabs
hold onto one another,
(a) what is their velocity immediately after the collision?
(b) what are the initial and final kinetic energies of the system?

Example 5:
The ballistic pendulum (as shown in figure below) is a
device used to measure the speed of a fast-moving
projectile such as a bullet. The bullet is fired into a large
block of wood suspended from some light wires. The bullet
is stopped by the block, and the entire system swings up to
a height h. It is possible to obtain the initial speed of the
bullet by measuring h and the two masses. As an example
of the technique, assume that the mass of the bullet m1 =
5.00 g, the mass of the pendulum m2 = 1.000 kg, and h is
5.00 cm.
(a) Find the velocity of the
system after the bullet
embeds in the block.
(b) Calculate the initial speed of
the bullet.
