An animation to illustrate that a particle moving in a straight line conserves angular momentum and obeys Kepler's second law.
A brief definition of this principle.
Definiton of this concept with links to further information.
This applet simulates a well known experiment which demonstrates the conservation of momentum and energy.
Information on this concept and links to related subjects. The position and momentum of a particle cannot be simultaneously measured with arbitrarily high precision.
A page explaining how figure skaters are able to perform rotating jumps, covering angular momentum, take off velocity, projectile motion etc.
Information on this concept and links to related information.
Animation showing a merry-go-round when a child jumps on via a slow walk or run. Also shows speeding up if movement is towards the centre. However, has no explanation so only useful as demonstration.
Suggested by De Broglie in about 1913, the path to the wavelength expression for a particle is by analogy to the momentum of a photon.
An experiment from our Physics To Go series about momentum and surface area. All you need is straws and a large baking potatoes.
