Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum

on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Law of conservation of linear momentum states if the net external force acting on a system of bodies is zero, then the momentum of the system remains constant.


law of conservation of linear momentum formula

\(\large{ \overrightarrow{p} =  m \; \overrightarrow{v}  }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ \overrightarrow{p} }\) = linear momentum \(\large{\frac{lbm-ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{kg-m}{s}}\)
\(\large{ m }\) = mass \(\large{lbm}\) \(\large{kg}\)
\(\large{ \overrightarrow{v} }\) = linear velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
