Conservation Of Momentum - Law of motion
Conservation Of Momentum
- If no external force acting on a system then momentum of a system is conserved.
- Momentum of a individual member may change due to applications of force. This force should not be a force external to system this should be internal force. The sum of momentum before and after the incident will remain same.
- If there is external force then there is no conservation of momentum.
- Newton’s third law of motion lead to the law of conservation of momentum.
