In this post, we will briefly mention the equations valid for elastic collisions. We can use these equations to solve numerical problems related to elastic collisions. The Equation for the conservation of momentum (for elastic collision) Now, to solve problems involving one-dimensional elastic collisions between two objects, we can use the equation for the conservation […]

## Newton’s third law from the equation of conservation of linear momentum

In this post, we will see how Newton’s third law can be derived from the equation of conservation of momentum. Derive Newton’s third law from the equation of conservation of linear momentum Say, a body of mass m1 with velocity u1 collides with another body of mass m2 with velocity u2. After the collision, say, […]
