Impulse and Momentum

Exploring Engineering Fundamentals Logo
This module investigates the dynamics of impulse and momentum and develops related equations. The nature of particle collisions, elastic and inelastic collisions, and the coefficient of restitution are covered in this unit. Various interactive elements are included such as videos and animations, interactive plots, and tutorials for solving examples with MapleSim. This module concludes by connecting the concepts of work and energy to momentum with a brief example. Keywords & Topics:
Momentum, impulse, line of impact, elastic, inelastic, collisions, coefficient of restitution
Main Topic: Kinematics & Dynamics
