Homework Help: Momentum Lab - Help!

  1. Jan 22, 2012 #1
    1. I need some help with a Lab that's due tomorrow
    For the lab a spark table was set-up flat, and one puck was shot at another. Using the dots that were on the paper, I managed to figure out the time and distance of Both the pucks before and after their collision. I was also able to calculate the Momentum for both of the pucks in the x and y directions. I now have to calculate the % error to see if the Momentum was conserved properly, but I am unsure of how to do this.

    2. v=d/t, P=mv, Mass of Puck1 = 0.01856, Mass of Puck2 = 0.01946
