Problem 8.1: Determine momentum and its conservation

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

A 1.5-kg box (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds) slides on ice for 1.5 seconds and then encounters a rough surface. Restart

  1. Find the momentum at the start of the animation.
  2. Is the momentum of the box constant during the first 1.5 seconds?
  3. Is the momentum of the box constant during the next three seconds?
  4. Is momentum conserved during the first 1.5 seconds?
  5. Is momentum conserved during the next three seconds?
