The truth is that we use momentum in just about every activity that involves motion. When we drive a car we use the principles of momentum to realize how much cushion space we need or how much stopping distance is needed when going a certain speed. Momentum is also extremely important when trying to understand collisions. Collisions occur every...

His theory reshaped the world of physics when it contradicted all previous laws of motion erected by Galileo and Newton. By mathematically manipulating these previous laws of motion, physicists in the nineteenth century were able to explain such phenomena as the flow of the ocean, the ...
