The ballistic pendulum is a classic example of a dissipative collision in which conservation of momentum can be used for analysis, but conservation of energy during the collision cannot be invoked ...
Find out how the detectors at CERN tell what particle has been created from the intense collisions.
2-dimensional collisions with variable velocity billiard balls
The site gives a practical demonstration on the collisions between gas molecules by varying the temperature and volume. Java applet.
This applet simulates collisions in one dimension. Users can change variables of mass, elasticity and initial speeds of masses on an air track.
Gustav Hertz (1887 - 1975) demonstrated the relationship between series of spectral lines and the energy losses of electrons in collision with atoms. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 ...
Good introduction to NASA's program dedicated to monitoring possible asteroid collisions. Basic knowledge of Solar System assumed. An informative, well-presented, well-focused site.
The mean free path or average distance between collisions for a gas molecule may be estimated from kinetic theory.
The impulse-momentum change theorem and the law of conservation of momentum are introduced, explained and applied to the analysis of collisions of objects.
Revision guide about conservation of momentum, collisions and impulse.
