Law of conservation of momentum

Open in App
Solution

  • Law of conservation of linear momentum is a extremely important consequence of Newton's third law of motion in combination with the second law of motion.
  • According to law of conservation of momentum When two or more bodies acts upon each other their total momentum remains constant provided no external forces are acting
  • So, Momentum is never created or destroyed.
  • When this law is applied for a collision between two bodies, the total momentum of the colliding bodies before collision is equal to the total momentum after collision

m1u1+m2u2=m1v1+m2v2 ,is known as the law of conservation of momentum
