A stone tied to a string of length l is whirled around a vertical circle with the other end of the string at the centre. At a certain instant of time the stone is at the lowest position and has a speed u. What is the magnitude of change in its velocity as it reaches…… Continue reading Motion in a vertical circle and conservation of energy

## Define Momentum

Momentum is defined as the quantity of motion. Only moving bodies possess momentum. It is a vector quantity and its direction is same as that of velocity. Momentum is measured as the product of mass and velocity. Momentum of a body is a measure of the …
