In this lesson, we'll learn about momentum and how it is transferred. Whether you're playing pool (or "billiards") or deciding whether you want to get tackled by the 150 kg person, these concepts are of key importance.

- Calculating linear momentum and change in momentumGet 3 of 4 questions to level up!
- Momentum and velocity from force vs. time graphsGet 3 of 4 questions to level up!
- Change in momentum and speed from force vs. time graphsGet 3 of 4 questions to level up!

Categorizing the different types of collisions can be useful. In this lesson, we'll learn what it means for a collision to be elastic and what that tells us about the momentum and kinetic energy during the collision.

Collisions can be elastic or inelastic. In this lesson, we'll learn what quantities are conserved and not conserved during inelastic collisions.

- Properties of inelastic and elastic collisionsGet 3 of 4 questions to level up!

Learn about the center of mass and how to analyze momentum for collisions in two-dimensions.

- Predicting motion using the center of mass Get 3 of 4 questions to level up!
