This is an interactive resources about simple collisions and conservation of momentum. Students use a virtual air hockey table to investigate simple collisions in 1D and more complex collisions in 2D. They experiment with the number of discs, masses, and initial conditions. They can also vary the elasticity and see how the total momentum and kinetic energy changes during collisions. This interactive resource is supported by tips for teachers and ideas for using the resource that have been submitted by other educators.
