EXPERIMENT PRINCIPLE OF CONSERVATION OF LINEAR MOMENTUM Objective: To verify the principle of conservation of linear momentum. Theory: Linear momentum, p is a vector quantity defined as the product of mass and velocity. For a body mass, m and velocity, v; its momentum is given as p = mv. In the absence of external force, that is, in an isolated system, the total momentum of the system is constant. In other words, the total momentum is conserved. This is known as the Principle of Conservation of Linear Momentum. Applying the Principle of Conservation of Linear Momentum in collision, the total momentum of the colliding bodies remains the same before and after the collision. Let m1 and m2 be the masses of two colliding bodies (i.e body 1 and body 2) as shown in Figure 3.1 and u1, u2, v1 and v2 are the velocities before and after the collision of the body 1 and body 2 respectively. We may write this as: m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 since momentum is a vector quantity, the principle of conservation of linear momentum is equally true in both x-axis and y-axis direction. In the case of an oblique impact, we resolve the momentum into x-axis and y-axis and we may write the equation as: x-axis and y-axis 0 = m1v1 sinα – m2v2 sinβ m1u1 = m1v1 cosα + m2v2 cosβ

.1 In the experiment.a) head-on-collision Figure 3. we shall study the collision between two ball bearings on a curved track. The first ball bearings is released from the top of the track so that it gains momentum m1u1 before it hits the second ball bearing which is stationary at the horizontal end of the track.

If t is the time of flight.2a Ball bearing 1 Ball bearing 2 Table Carbon paper Figure 3.Ball bearing 1 Curved track Horizontal end Table h R Figure 3. we may write: .2b Let h be the height of the ball bearing 1 from the falling point to the ground when it starts to fall freely and R is its horizontal displacement. then from the kinematics equation.

.4 Evidently. if equation 3.5 and 3. R.4. the velocity of the ball bearing is directly proportional to its horizontal displacement.6 are practically satisfied. we may write: x-axis and y-axis 0 = m1y1 – m2y2 3.-h = 0 + ½ (-g) t2 t = √ 2h/g The horizontal displacement of the ball bearing. R = uxt Where ux = u = velocity of the ball bearing as it reach the horizontal track end R = u√2h/g Thus. the principle of conservation of linear momentum is thus verified.5 Evidently.3 respectivelyninto equation 3. u = R√g/2h 3. Since the balls fall from the same height. by substituting equations 3.2 and 3.6 m1x0 = m1x1 + m2x2 3.

The point is only 0. The error also happens when taking the measurement using the metre rule. So. Lastly try to reduce the errors by using the zero parallax error instrument. Discussion : The result cannot be obtained due to some error such as air resistance. the calculation will never be accurate Besides that. The metre rule is not so accurate and not very sensitive. the collision of the ball bearing will never same as stated in the theory due to some limitation.367 So. Conclusion . The result was tempered and not accurate. both equation does not verify the principle of conservation of linear momentum. To get the correct result the experiment should be carry out in the vacuum medium.0 ≠ 0. there was no air resistance and another force that react on the experiment. This is because the experiment was handled in the room. In the vacuum medium.1.
