About This Chapter
Momentum & Conservation - Chapter Summary
This chapter dissects various scientific principles and theorems pertinent to the discussion of momentum and conservation. You'll learn about different forms of momentum as well as important laws of conservation and more. A full list of topics covered includes:
- The work-energy theorem
- Mechanical energy and its conservation
- Differentiating between angular and linear momentum
- The conservation of angular and linear momentum
You can pick between a video or transcript of each lesson, depending on which method of learning suits you best. Using the practice quizzes, you'll be able to monitor your understanding of every topic as you go, and if you ever feel lost, you can always look to our professional instructors for assistance through the help tab.
1. Work-Energy Theorem: Definition and Application
Work and energy are closely related in physics. In this lesson, you'll learn what that relationship is as well as how we can apply it to various situations.
2. Conservation of Mechanical Energy
Energy comes in many forms and for any system can never be created or destroyed. This holds true for mechanical energy, which also obeys this law of conservation of energy. In this video lesson, you'll explore how mechanical energy is converted or transferred between forms and objects.
3. Angular Momentum vs. Linear Momentum
After watching this lesson, you will be able to explain the difference between angular and linear momentum and solve problems using angular momentum equations. A short quiz will follow.
4. 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.
5. Conservation of Angular Momentum
After watching this video you will be able to explain what is meant by conservation of angular momentum. You will also be able to use this concept along with the equation to solve problems. A short quiz will follow.
