Keeping Track of Momentum (Hit and Stick Collisions)

The Keeping Track of Momentum (Hit and Stick Collisions) Concept Builder is designed to help students understand the momentum conservation principle as it applies to collisions between two objects in which the objects stick together and travel at the same speed after the collision. The main task on most questions involves the completion of a momentum table for such a hit-and-stick collision. There are three difficulty levels in the Concept Builder - Apprentice, Master, and Wizard. Question-specific help is provided for each question.
