Use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.

Interactive activity from The Physics Classroom where students where students analyze the relationship between the mass of objects and post-collision velocity.

Interactive activity from The Physics Classroom where students study momentum conservation for the situation of a dropped brick landing upon a moving cart.

Simulation from PhET that explains changes in momentum from collisions. More information can be found at PhET Interactive Simulations
