Description:

This simulation illustrates conservation of momentum through the collision of two masses. The user can adjust the masses of the planets and observe that they always will collide at their center of mass if they start at rest relative to each other. The momentum and forces on the masses are shown in the illustration and data collected for graphing. This item is part of a larger collection of physics simulations sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
