- At the end of this lesson, students will be able to identify the characteristics of an object that affect its momentum.
- At the end of this lesson, students will be able to identify and use the momentum formula, and to combine kinematics, to solve for any of the three variables.

Physics 30 ( grade12) unit 1

Tutorial

Watch this and then make notes on the characteristics of momentum.

Once you have an understanding of momentum, then watch the next video to show you how the math and units are used.

Note: We do not use 'J' to represent impulse. See if you can find the formula on our formula sheet.

All objects have momentum. True/False Discus.

Write the formula for momentum and include two (2) different units.

Why is momentum important?

You will given a problem to solve in your group of three. You will have 30 minutes to come up with a solution to this "Context Based" problem. You will then have time to work on assigned textbook questions.
