Impulse (changegin
momentum):

## In the same scenario,

impulse remains constant.
Since impulse is given by
F t , an increase in
time results in a smaller
average force felt

F external =0

## into elastic potential energy and back into kinetic energy

In an inelastic collision, kinetic energy is transformed into
other forms of energy like sound and heat

## with an acceleration equal to the gravitational fiend strength

(free fall towards Earth)
- Feel weightless
F N , which gives experience of our own weight, is equal
to 0
- Gravitational weight force is force by Earth on you
- Reaction force is force by surface on you
m gN =m a
- True weightlessness when g=0 N kg1
Banking reduces/eliminates the need for sideways frictional
forces and allows cars to travel faster without skidding out of
the circular path; centripetal force (component of F N ) is
increased
In circular orbit, no work is done as Ek and U g remain
constant
An isolated system is where the collision involves only internal
forces (gravity and friction are outside forces)
Momentum is always conserved before, after and during a
collision
