Mission MC10: Momentum and Proportional Reasoning

Mission MC10 focuses on the use of a skill known as proportional reasoning to predict the post-collision speed of an object involved in a hit-stick-style collision. The mission consists of 28 questions organized into 7 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcome for this mission is ...

Learning Outcome

  • The student should be able to use the conservation of momentum principle to predict the effect of an increase in mass upon the final velocity of an object.
