Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Physics Interactives; Fish Catch

The Proportional Reasoning video used an animation of a "Fish Catch" on several slides. This is the interactive version of those animations. Pick a mass ratio, an initial speed and observe the effect of the hit-and-stick collision on the after-collision velocity.


Concept Builder: Law Enforcement - Hit and Stick Collisions

Concept Builder are great for strengthening your conceptual understandings. This one is a great follow-up to the Proprotional Reasoning video. Great thinking!


Concept Builder: Keeping Track of Momentum - Hit and Stick Collisions

This Concept Builder will challenge you to use the law of momentum conservation to complete a momentum table for a hit-and-stick collision. Awesome practice!


Minds On Physics the App, Part 3, Missions MC10

Minds On Physics is not for the meek. But if you want a rigorous workout, you will find it here. Download the app to your phone or tablet, set up your account, and do some heavy conceptual lifting. And always know that a tap on the textbook icon will lead you to volumes of question-specific help. Try Mission MC10 as a follow-up to this video.


Mutlmedia Physics Studios ... Momentum Chapter

Here is a collection of old GIF animations from one of the oldest section of our website. While the technology is admittedly old, the lessons are current. Each animation comes with a thorough and understandable explanation. Many of the GIFs have been used in this video.

Physics Classroom Tutorial, Momentum and Its Conservation Chapter, Lesson 2: The Law of Momentum Conservation

Our Tutorial section always comes through with a common sense explanation of a topic. It makes a great written reference. Check out this page for support specific to this video tutorial:
