Key Terms and Concepts
- Describe how locomotion occurs in terms of Newton’s Laws of Motion and in terms of the Law of Momentum Conservation.
- Apply Newton’s Second and Third Laws of motion along with kinematics to analyze the motion of objects.
- Evaluate strategies for reducing the forces experienced by objects undergoing changes in motion.
- Apply the impulse-momentum theorem and conservation of momentum to analyze the motion of objects.
the tenancy of an object to resist changes in motion
movement or the ability to move from one place to another
the acceleration experienced by an object is equal to the net force on the object divided my the object's mass
for every force applied by an object on a second object, a force equal in size, but opposite in direction, will be applied to the first object by the second object
the change in momentum experienced by an object is equal to the net impulse applied to the object
the momentum of an object or collection of objects (system) remains constant if the net impulse on the system is zero
the combined total momentum of all objects in system immediately prior to a collision be the same as the total momentum of all objects in the system immediately after the collision
