The law of conservation of momentum holds for_______


The law of conservation of momentum holds for a system of particles and not for individual bodies.

Law Of Conservation Of Linear Momentum

According to the conservation of linear momentum, if the net external force acting on a system of bodies is zero, then the momentum of the system remains constant.

  • It’s important to note that the system’s momentum, not the individual particle’s is conserved.
  • Individual bodies in the system’s momentum can increase or decrease depending on the situation, but the system’s momentum will always be conserved as long as no external net force is acting on it.
