• ### Can a system of two or more objects have a total kinetic energy that is not zero but a total momentum that is zeroaccount for your answer?

Yes, Take two objects of the same mass, A and B, whose velocities, VA and vb, are opposite Ke = .5(m...

• ### What is the difference between momentum and kinetic energy and why is it that kinetic energy can be changed in to other forms of energy but momentum cant?

Firstly, momentum is not a form of energy; the question seems to imply so. Kinetic energy is the energy...

• ### Can a system of two or more objects have a total kinetic energy that is not zero but a total momentum that is zero?

Yes. Kinetic energy is a scalar (non-directional) and momentum is a vector. That means if you have two...

• ### Can a system of two or more objects have a total kinetic energy that is zero but a total momentum that is not zero?

If the total kinetic energy is zero, this undeniably means that the bodies are not moving. If they are...

• ### What type of collision is this? Two objects note separately after colliding, and both the total momentum and total kinetic energy remain constant?

In an elastic collision, both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved.

• ### Can a system of 2 or more objects have a total kinetic energy that is not zero but a total momentum that is zero? Why or why not?

Yes, Take two objects of the same mass, A and B, whose velocities, va and vb, are opposite Ke = .5(m...

Yes

• ### What is the difference between kinetic energy and momentum?

How are the two measured differently? e.g. if an object strikes you and it hurts more, is it because the object has more kinetic energy or momentum?
