ABSTRACT

The law of conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy help us better define understand collisions. The objective of this lab was to learn how to apply them correctly and to better understand collisions. In this lab a two cart track system is used that created collision scenarios that had to be examined and broken down. The information from these collisions supported the law of conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy. Also a video of two pucks colliding with each other was used. This video was then used in Logger Pro to get information about the velocities surrounding their collision. Then that information was used and compared to the law of conservation of motion and energy conservation. The data supported our hypothesis; which stated that the law of conservation of momentum and energy conservation would be upheld.
