Momentum experiment

  1. Jul 8, 2007 #1
    i have to complete an experiement for physics involving momentum. it needs to be fairly simple, yet be complex enough for me to write a big report on it. It would be good if it were to involve several physics formulas. if you have any ideas then please let me know asap. im desperate! thanks.

    You can analyze an inelastic collision. You can try to show how momentum is conserved in it, and that mechanical energy isn't. This gives you two concepts to discuss, momentum and energy. Good Luck!
