i.

Launch Phet collision lab

ii.

Enable the "More Data" option to view the individual velocities of the objects

iii.

Make sure the elasticity is set at 100% elastic.

iv .

Define the system

V.

Keeping the default settings and predict the outcome of the collision. In which

direction will the two objects move after the collision?

vi.

Find the initial total system momentum (show calculations)

vii.

Find the final total system momentum (show calculations). Is the initial and the final

net system momentum conserved?

viii.

Change the masses and the velocities and press the play button. For each cases are

the momentum conserved?

6.2. Inelastic Collision
