Carolina® Introduction to Momentum and Collisions Kit
Grades 9–12. Investigate one of the fundamental laws of physics: conservation of momentum. Use the swinging spheres of Newton's cradle (included) as a pre-lab demonstration to explore class knowledge of conservation laws. Students conduct experiments to calculate the momentum of 2 bodies both before and after an elastic collision and determine if results are consistent with linear momentum conservation. Kit supports 8 student groups.
