1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A bucket full of water is slid across a sheet of ice in the rain. As the bucket fills, what happens to its velocity and its momentum? ( assume no friction) 2. Relevant equations P=mv 3. The attempt at a solutionI reasoned that since the bucket gained mass it gained momentum and that since no force acted on the bucket in the horizontal direction v stayed constant. Answer given: velocity decreases and momentum remains constant Does this means momentum is a conserved quantity?
