This is a short Quicktime video of a cart moving from left to right colliding with a stationary cart. Mass is varied in each video so that three elastic collisions and three inelastic collisions are depicted. This item is designed for computer analysis in introductory physics classrooms. The videos are 10-30 frames in length and may be viewed in step motion or real-time. Position and time data may be measured and collected by using video-analysis software.
SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE for a link to download free Tracker video analysis software. Tracker allows students to not only analyze the video in slow-motion, but also to overlay the videos with dynamical models to see how well the model matches the real world.
This item is part of a larger collection of short physics videos developed by the Rochester Institute of Technology Live Photo Physics Project.
