5: Th 2/1, 7: F 2/2

Today, you'll apply what you've learned about momentum by solving basic momentum problems.  Do page 4 of the Momentum Packet.  (SOLUTIONS to Momentum Practice Problems p 3-4) 

Then, after solving some basic momentum problems, you'll learn to combine momentum problems with other ideas that we've studied in this class. Work on page 5 of the Momentum PacketSOLUTIONS & Alternate Solution to Momentum 2 #2 if you assume that gas is expelled perpendicularly with respect to rocket.  

Homework:  Complete at least pages 1-3 of the Momentum Packet.  QUIZ  -  Tuesday, Feburary 6th on simple momentum and impulse problems in one dimension (pages 1-3 material) .  If you're still having trouble understanding explosion problems, check out the following video starting at time 5:40:
