Study the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy in collisions. Demonstrate the differences between elastic and inelastic collisions. The Collision in Two Dimensions apparatus works by holding a steel ball at the top of a curved aluminum track. When the ball is released, it travels down the track and collides with another ball placed on an adjustable target support. Students then observe how the two balls fall. Supplied with track, two steel balls, a hollow wooden ball, and a plumb bob. Complete instructions provided.
