Objectives of the CEOE Physics: Linear & Angular Momentum Chapter
This chapter covers the linear and angular momentum concepts you'll need to know for the CEOE Physics certification test, but also introduces you to the CEOE format. Our lesson quizzes mimic the format of the CEOE test questions and help you retain the chapter information.
The CEOE Physics certification test is administered at a computer and timed to last four hours. You must complete eighty multiple-choice questions and one essay in that time. The essay accounts for 15% of your score, and other tasks account for the remainder.
1. Linear Momentum: Definition, Equation, and Examples
Any moving object has momentum, but how much momentum it has depends on its mass and velocity. In this lesson, you'll identify linear momentum, as well as see examples of how an object's momentum is affected by mass and velocity.
2. Momentum and Impulse: Definition, Theorem and Examples
To understand how a change in momentum affects an object, we look to impulse. In this lesson, you'll understand how impulse describes an object's change in momentum, as well as how changing the force or time of the impulse can have very different outcomes.
3. Conservation of Linear Momentum: Formula and Examples
The law of conservation of momentum tells us that the amount of momentum for a system doesn't change. In this lesson, we'll explore how that can be true even when the momenta of the individual components does change.
4. Elastic and Inelastic Collisions: Difference and Principles
When objects come in contact with each other, a collision occurs. In this lesson, you'll learn about the two types of collisions as well as how momentum is conserved in each.
5. Isolated Systems in Physics: Definition and Examples
Systems are important to understand when studying physics, but they are not always easy to describe. In this video lesson, you'll identify isolated systems and understand what makes them unique.
6. The Relationship Between Angular Momentum & Torque
In this lesson, we'll explore how torque and angular momentum affect objects in rotational motion. In doing this, we'll also discover the important relationship between torque and angular momentum.
7. Angular Impulse & Change in Momentum
Learn what we mean when we say something experiences an angular impulse. Then discover the relationship between angular impulse and change in angular momentum.
8. Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum
Learn what we mean by conservation of angular momentum. Then, explore examples of how it affects the real world by looking at swivel chairs, asteroids, and figure skaters!
