Conservation of Momentum using Rollerblades and a medicine ball part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this guided inquiry demonstration, a person on rollerblades and a medicine ball are used to teach the concept of conservation of momentum. Various sorts of "collisions" (throws and catches) are used to show how momentum is conserved within a system. This macro-scale demonstration works very well to introduce a unit on impulse and momentum.
