Momentum in an Elastic Collision
Simulates the collision of two marbles and the implied forces
Momentum in an Elastic Collision shows how momentum is conserved. Momentum in an Elastic Collision uses labels to see the moment in time when the momentum of the first (red) marble is transferred to the second (yellow) marble.
The basis for this simulation is to give students a visual representation of this MCAS problem. Also, they can see the effects of changing the mass or velocity of either marble.
Momentum in an Elastic Collision shows the marbles colliding as well as a graphic representation of the change in momentum and velocity over time.
