-The tool below will calculatethe velocities, momentum and kinetic energies of the objects before and after the 3 collisions. You should then verify whether momentum and/or kinetic energy is conserved in each collision. Bear in mind that what you need to decide is whether the total momentum or total kinetic energy is the same before or after the collision //within experimental error//. This means that the values do not need to be exactly the same, but there should be overlap of the ranges around the values when you take in to account the experimental uncertainty. ​ Discuss your results with your TA!+The tool below will calculate the velocities, momentum and kinetic energies of the objects before and after the 3 collisions.
