Who's it for?
This chapter of our NY Regents Exam - Physics: Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about linear momentum and pass the physics portion of the exam. This resource can help students including those who:
- Struggle with understanding the momentum conservation principle, impulse-momentum change, isolated systems or any other linear momentum topic
- Have limited time for studying
- Want a cost effective way to supplement their physics learning
- Prefer learning physics visually
- Find themselves failing or close to failing their linear momentum unit
- Cope with ADD or ADHD
- Want to get ahead in physics
- Don't have access to their physics teacher outside of class
Why it works:
- Engaging Tutors: We make learning linear momentum simple and fun.
- Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
- Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live physics tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
- Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about linear momentum on the go!
- Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
- Explain the laws of momentum.
- Solve momentum problems.
- Understand the equation for impulse-momentum change.
- Apply the formula for momentum conservation.
- Study elastic and inelastic collisions.
- Determine when a collision happens in an isolated system.
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.
