Are Linear and Angular Momentum Conserved during this Collision? (9:51)
When a point particle collides with a rigid object with shape which is allowed to rotate on a stationary axis, is linear momentum of the system conserved? Is angular momentum of the system conserved? These questions are answered using both directions and equations, and also demonstrated.
