Newton Balls


Newton Balls consists of five balls having equal masses. The setup illustrates the three main physics principles at work: conservation of energy, conservation of momentum and friction. The principle of conservation of momentum (mass times speed) states that when two objects collide, the total momentum of the objects before the collision is equal to the total momentum of the objects after the collision.
