In the last chapter you learned about the causes of motion of an object by studying work and energy.  In this chapter, you will learn more about motion through momentum and impulse.  Momentum is conserved in nature, which means it remains the same both before and after an interaction such as a collision.  This makes it easier to analyze and solve real-world problems, like interactions in sports or with sub-atomic particles.

In Chapter 6, you will learn about the following:

  • linear momentum,

  • impulse,

  • conservation of momentum law, and

  • collisions.
