Investigate conservation of momentum and elastic and inelastic collisions.
- Create collisions of various types (elastic, inelastic and partially elastic)
- Compare changes in kinetic energy
This apparatus allows students to investigate conservation of momentum and kinetic energy change in collisions. It can also be used to compare elastic and inelastic collisions.
Kit includes: curved aluminum track with adjustable target support, 2 steel balls, 1 glass ball, 1 hollow wooden ball, 1 plumb line, and activity guide.
