Conservation of Momentum Experiment
Conservation of Momentum Experiment
A real-time graph of Velocity vs. Time is obtained for each cart, clearly showing when the elastic collision occurred.
Conservation of Momentum Experiment
The top graph of the total momentum for the 2-cart system (as calculated in PASCO Capstone) shows no change throughout the elastic collision. The total kinetic energy, shown in the bottom graph, momentarily decreases during the collision because energy is stored as magnetic potential energy.
