Teacher Notes – Activity 14: Momentum in Collisions

Time Estimates

Preparation: 20 min

Activity: 40 min


Students will be able to…

  • use Motion Sensors to measure the motion of two carts in a variety of collisions.

  • use the Xplorer GLX to record and display the velocity for each cart.

  • use the graphs of velocity versus time and the built-in analysis tools of the Xplorer GLX to determine the velocity before and after for each cart in each collision.

  • calculate the total momentum before and the total momentum after each collision.

  • compare the momentum before and the momentum after for each collision.
