# Solving Momentum Problems

Right off the bat we notice that in case A the ball is bouncing directly back in the horizontal direction, whereas in case B it’s taking a ricochet off the wall. – How conservation of energy is used to determine the initial and final velocity: We know that energy is conserved, what does that mean?If we remember, that means that the energy in equals the energy out. Because the mass stays the same, this implies that the initial velocity and final velocity of the ball in both cases are equal.It’s tempting with these types of problems to want to analyze it based on your intuition, but it always helps to go back through, look at the principles and assumptions involved, and actually put together the equations for yourself even if it’s just symbolically.

“The goal for me is to learn, gather materials, and bring it back to teach my Marines,” Terrazas Jr. “If they understand and can do these kinds of tasks, than that can continuously get passed on.” Marines interested in attending upcoming workshops may contact [email protected] information.

And in this video I go through an example of a conceptual change in momentum problem from a Physics 1 exam, step-by-step.

A ball of mass = 10g slides on a frictionless table and strikes a barrier in two different cases as shown in the figure.

In A, it bounces right back to retrace its path; in B, it bounces diagonally (path shown in dotted line).

The initial speed of the ball is the same in both cases and no energy is lost in either collision. (A) There is not enough information to determine which case has a greater change in momentum (B) The change in the ball’s momentum is zero for both cases (C) The change in the ball’s momentum is greater for case A than for B (D) The change in the ball’s momentum is the same in both cases (but not zero) (E) The change in the ball’s momentum is greater for case B than for A – Breaking down the problem statement and final answer: It says the correct answer is C, the change in the ball’s momentum is greater for case A than for case B.

“We believe you have to have a better understanding of different problem solving techniques, and not just the one that you’re good at.” Innovation Boot Camp, operating within The Garden by Building Momentum, allows access to all the equipment and technology to support the course.

Inside the walls of the workshop, are wood, metal, and electronic workshops, which are accessible to students, artists and engineers.

“It is not too difficult to become a good problem solver, but a Ph. engineer will not know the difficulties of being an infantryman,” he explained further.

Marines attending had to put their knowledge to the test during their culminating event.
