Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.


Case Studies: Impulse and Force Concept Builder

Concept Builders provide you with a great check up of your understanding. This Concept Builder has very close ties to this video tutorial lesson, emphasizing the comparison of the momentum change, impulse, and force for two contrasting collisions. It's a great follow-up to our video.


Being Impulsive About Momentum Concept Builder

Here's another Concept Builder to strengthen your Conceptual understandings. The main outcomes of this Concept Builder is an understanding of the mathematical connection between impulse and momentum change. 


Physics Interactives; Egg Drop Simulation

In what way can the variables  m, ∆v, and ∆t be modified to prevent an egg from breaking during an egg drop. This is a great chance to find out without making a mess. We're not yoking!


The Calculator Pad, Momentum and Collisions Section, Problems #3-#11

Not all Physics courses are created equal. If yours emphasizes the solving of Physics word problems, then get acquainted with our Calculator Pad section. You will find problems with a wide range of difficulty level, answers to every problem, and an audio-guided solution. This page has 8 problems to get you started with using the F•∆t = m•∆v equation. Check it out!


Minds On Physics the App, Part 3, Missions MC2 - MC3

Minds On Physics is not for the meek. But if you want a rigorous workout, you will find it here. Get the download to your phone or tablet, set up your account, and do some heavy conceptual lifting. And always know that a tap on the textbook icon will lead you to volumes of question-specific help. 


Physics Classroom Tutorial, Momentum and Its Conservation Chapter, Lesson 1: Real World Applications

Our Tutorial section always comes through with a common sense explanation of a topic. It makes a great written reference. When you need to brush up on impulse and momentum change applications, check out this page.
