Overview:  In this unit, Newton’s second law of motion is linked to the concepts of momentum and impulse. This unit builds on: Physics 20, Unit A: Kinematics; Unit B: Dynamics; and Unit C: Circular Motion, Work and Energy. This unit prepares students for further study of mechanics in subsequent units and for post-secondary study.  Unit A will require approximately 15% of the time allotted for Physics 30.

Focusing Questions:

  • What characteristics of an object affect its momentum?
  • How are momentum and impulse related?
  • How does our understanding of concepts relating momentum and impulse influence the design of safety and sporting equipment?
