Today, we'll start a lab where we investigate conserved quantities in collisions.  We'll use our most high tech Vernier carts and your Chromebooks to take data.  You'll debate the historic ideas of Descartes and Leibniz.  Which of the following quantities are conserved in collisions?
  • mass x speed
  • mass x velocity
  • mass x speed squared
See Google Classroom for details.
