Physics Ch. 7 Momentum

  1. Term applied to a physical quantity, such as momentum, energy, or electric charge, that remains unchanged during interactions.
    conserved
  2. Collision in which colliding objects rebound without lasting deformation or heat generation.
    elastic collision
  3. Products of force and time interval during which the force acts. It equals momentum change.
    impulse
  4. A collision in which the colliding objects become distorted and/or generate heat during the collision.
    inelastic collision
  5. In the absence of a net external force, the momentum of an object or system of objects is unchanged.
    law of conservation of momentum
  6. The product of the mass and the velocity of an object (provided the speed is much less than the speed of light). Has magnitude and direction (a vector quantity).
