- The purpose of this lab is to verify the conservation of momentum when two carts collide

- the procedure is outlined in the handout from class

- Is momentum conserved in both elastic and inelastic scenarios?
- Does mass affect the conservation of momentum?
- Is it important to ensure the table is level?

- use the conservation of momentum equation to prove (or disprove) the law
- what factors could interfere with the lab? how would they interfere?
- calculating the percent difference between two quantities is the best way to show that a law is verified
