STEMonstrations: Momentum and Impulse

Did you know momentum plays a part in how astronauts appear weightless on the International Space Station? In this STEMonstration, European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen explores the science involved in momentum and impulse and demonstrates how it relates to life on station! Get an insider look into the microgravity environment of the space station and how to measure mass using momentum with the Space Linear Acceleration Mass Measurement Device. Additionally, explore momentum and impulse in the corresponding classroom connection, where students will perform a drop test with three different kinds of balls on three different types of surfaces.
