What is an elastic collision? A collision in which both kinetic energy and momentum are conserved.
What is an inelastic collision? A collision in which only momentum is conserved.
What is the vector nature of momentum? Direction is important, momentum to the right has a positive sign and momentum to the left has a negative sign.
What is the equation for impulse? Ft = mv - mu
What does the term Ft mean? Ft stands for impulse and is equal to the change in momentum.
