Arnav Sridher Period 2 Physics Collision Investigation Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to investigate the change in total momentum and total kinetic energy of an isolated 2 car collision. Procedure: Go to the website given Set up trial 1 Set a velocity for both cars as well as the mass. Make sure to follow the sheet that says what each trial should include. Press go and record the final velocity for each vehicle Repeat the steps for each trial Once you have 10 trials accounted for, calculate kinetic energy using the equation Ek=1/2(mv2) Once you have done this for the 10 trials, calculate the momentum that each vehicle has using the equation P=mv Data Table: Trials 1-4(elastic), trials 5-8(perfectly inelastic), and trials 9&10(inelastic) M1 (Kg) M2 (Kg) V1 (m/s) V2 (m/s)

## Need Notes?

While we strive to provide the most comprehensive notes for as many high school textbooks as possible, there are certainly going to be some that we miss. Drop us a note and let us know which textbooks you need. Be sure to include which edition of the textbook you are using! If we see enough demand, we'll do whatever we can to get those notes up on the site for you!
