Momenta, Impulses, and Collisions

  • Oliver M. O’Reilly


Here, the linear and angular momenta of a particle are discussed. In particular, conditions for the conservation of these kinematical quantities are established. This is followed by a discussion of impact problems where particles are used as models for the impacting bodies.
