- Momentum is defined as the product of mass and velocity.
- The principle of conservation of momentum states that in a system of collision or explosion, the total momentum is constant if no external force is acted upon the system.
Total Momentum Before Reaction = Total Momentum After Reaction
- Elastic collision is the collision where the kinetic energy is conserved after the collision.
Inelastic collision is the collision where the kinetic energy is not conserved after the collision.
