This program investigates the conservation of linear momentum in one dimensional collisions. Two skaters on frictionless ice can be made to collide at different speeds. They can also be given different masses to carry. Velocity, momentum and kinetic energy are calculated before and after each collision. This data can be viewed as a bar chart or in a table. Results can be printed out and there is a small help file with suggestions for experiments.
