Proportional Reasoning and Collisions Analysis Video Tutorial

Physics formulas can be more than a recipe for plug-and-chug problem-solving. They can also be a powerful guide for thinking about the effect of variables on a physical situation. The Proportional Reasoning and Collisions Analysis Video Tutorial explains how to use momentum and momentum conservation to analyze hit-and-stick collisions and quickly determine the after-collision speed of objects.. Numerous examples, illustrations, and animations assist in the explanations. The video lesson answers the following question:

  1. How do you combine proportional reasoning and momentum conservation to predict the post-collision velocity of a hit-and-stick collision?
