Linear momentum I

Performance Objectives

Students should be able to;

  1. Explain the concept of momentum and impulse.
  2. State and explain the meaning of each of Newton’s three laws of motion.
  3. Show graphically the relationship between produced by u given set of force acting on the same mass.
  4. State and explain the meaning of the law of conservation of linear momentum.

Newton’s First law of Motion, impulse and momentum


The influence of unbalanced forces and the laws governing the motion are discussed in this topic.

Newton’s First Law of Motion

The first law states that every object continues in its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force.
