law of conservation of momentum

What is the Law Of Conservation Of Momentum? | derivation

If there is no net external force on a system, the total momentum of the system remains constant. This is the law of conservation of momentum. (also known as the principle of conservation of momentum). Here, by the term momentum, we mean Linear Momentum. When the net external force acting on a system is zero […]

How do Rockets work?

How do rockets work? As the rocket engines operate, some kind of fuel (liquid or solid) is burnt. The engines continuously eject burned fuel gases. As these exhaust gases have both mass and velocity, they have some momentum as well. By the principle of conservation of momentum, the rocket’s momentum changes by this same amount […]

Solution to problems – class 9 physics – Set 1 Q 57

Problem Statement 57) A ball X of mass 1 kg travelling at 2 m/s has a head-on collision with an identical ball Y at rest. X stops and Y moves off. Calculate the velocity of Y after the collision. Solution Initial momentum of X = 1×2 kg m/s = 2 kg m/s …………….(i) After collision […]
