Description

Momentum_action2

To verify the conservation of linear momentum, these students analyzed colliding pucks on a carom board through videography. They used primary color markers to identify the pucks in the video. A frame-by-frame analysis of the video of the collision provided trajectories of the pucks against time, which were used to calculate velocities. Conservation of momentum was subsequently investigated. A quantitative analysis of the frictional co-efficient between the board and the pucks and the analysis of rotational rolling of the pucks was also conducted.
