1 A Resource for Free-standing Matheatics Qualifications Iagine that a wall of your house is hit on one occasion by a boy on a skateboard and on another by a large juggernaut. Suppose both had a speed of 1 s -1 at ipact. Which daages your house less? 1 s -1 Your answer to this question shows that when you odel a, you ust consider ore than just the velocities of the bodies involved. Their asses are also significant. Moentu When an object of ass kilogras oves with velocity v etres per second, its oentu is v (easured in kg s -1 or Ns). Moentu, like velocity, is a vector having both agnitude and diension. Whenever two objects are in contact, they exert equal and opposite forces on each other. In the case of a in which both objects can ove, the contact produces equal and opposite changes in oentu. Provided that no external force acts on either object, the total oentu of the two objects reains constant. For the Dynaics FSMQ, you will only need to use this property for objects oving in one diension. The Principle of Conservation of Linear Moentu When a occurs between two objects, the total oentu after is equal to the total oentu before the (assuing that there are no external forces). 1 v v 2 = 1 u u 2 u 1 s -1 u 2 s v 1 s -1 v 2 s -1 In soe s the two colliding objects separate after the, whereas in others they join together. In the first case the objects have different velocities after the whereas in the second case they ove together with the sae velocity after the ipact. When solving a proble involving a, draw a clear diagra showing the velocities before and after the ipact. In cases where the objects ove in opposite directions, take care to define one direction as the 'positive' direction an object oving in the opposite direction will have negative velocity. Soe exaples in real contexts follow. The Nuffield Foundation 1

The wood has a speed of 1.4 s -1 before the and a speed of 1 s -1 in the sae direction after the. What is the speed of the jack after the? 1.4 s -1 0 s -1 1 s -1 v s -1 By the principle of conservation of linear oentu v = v = = 0.4 v = 2 The jack has speed 2 s -1 after the. Skiers A skier of ass 75 kg who is oving at 8 s -1 collides with a skier of ass 60 kg oving at 4 s -1 in the sae direction. The faster skier's speed is reduced to 6 s -1 after the. What happens to the speed of the other skier? By the principle of conservation of linear oentu v = v = = 390 v = 6.5 The skier's speed is increased to 6.5 s -1 8 s kg 6 s -1 4 s -1 v s kg Tank A tank of ass 27.5 tonnes fires a shell of ass 7.5 kg with a speed of 300 s -1. Find the initial speed of recoil of the tank.

They slide at a speed of 15 s -1 along a horizontal snow surface and then collide into a girl on her toboggan travelling in the sae direction at a speed of 7 s -1. The girl and her toboggan have a total ass of 50 kg., the speed of the boy and his toboggan is reduced to 9 s -1. The situations before and after the are shown below. Find the new speed, v s -1, of the girl and her toboggan after the. 15 s -1 7 s -1 9 s -1 v s kg 50 kg 65 kg 50 kg 2 A student experients with soe sall trolleys which can ove freely along a plastic track. a) The first which she investigates is arranged so that a trolley oves with initial speed 1 s -1 and collides with another which is stationary, as shown below. Both trolleys are identical and have ass kg. The trolleys stick together at and ove away together with speed v s -1. Use the principle of conservation of oentu to find v. u = 1 s -1 0 s -1 v s -1 b) In the second experient she investigates how the final speed, v s -1, of the cobined trolleys after the varies with the initial speed u s -1 of the oving trolley before ipact as shown below.
