Website Detail Page

written by Aaron Titus
This page contains a set of problems that supplement Chapter 2 on the Momentum Principle, in the introductory textbook Matter and Interactions by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. Topics include impulse, applying the Momentum Principle, conservation of momentum, and collisions. The author integrates modern physics with the inclusion of problems on Rutherford scattering and impulse required to accelerate a proton.  Each problem can be viewed separately, with solutions, or downloaded as a pdf file.

The site includes videos showing solutions to many of the problems. These can be followed with RSS or as podcasts from iTunes. Instructors are encouraged to submit their own problems and solutions to the web site. Problems must be submitted in LaTeX format; the web site provides ample support for this process.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Although this material is organized to support Matter and Interactions by Chabay and Sherwood, most of the problems can be used with other introductory physics texts. Additional information about the pedagogy behind Matter and Interactions, which emphasizes student modeling and a modern perspective, can be found at
Matter and Interactions Home Page
