WHAT DOES CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

conservation of momentum

Momentum

In classical mechanics, linear momentum or translational momentum is the product of the mass and velocity of an object. For example, a heavy truck moving quickly has a large momentum—it takes a large or prolonged force to get the truck up to this speed, and it takes a large or prolonged force to bring it to a stop afterwards. If the truck were lighter, or moving more slowly, then it would have less momentum. Like velocity, linear momentum is a vector quantity, possessing a direction as well as a magnitude Linear momentum is also a conserved quantity, meaning that if a closed system is not affected by external forces, its total linear momentum cannot change. In classical mechanics, conservation of linear momentum is implied by Newton's laws; but it also holds in special relativity and, with appropriate definitions, a linear momentum conservation law holds in electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, and general relativity.

Definition of conservation of momentum in the English dictionary

The definition of conservation of momentum in the dictionary is the principle that the total linear or angular momentum in any isolated system is constant, provided that no external force is applied.
