There are 4 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Collision and Impulse. Types of Collision. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Collision and Impulse. Types of Collision and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Collision and Impulse. Types of Collision. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

• What is impulse?
• How impulse is related to momentum?
• When does the phenomenon of impulse take place?
• How can we represent the impulse graphically?
• What is the definition of collision?
• How many types of collision arte there?
• What occurs during each type of collision?

## Introduction

Suppose you throw two identical stones from the same height. Obviously, they hit the ground at the same velocity. The first stone falls on a hard ground while the other on a kind of sponge. Both stones stop moving after their respective collision.

Do you think both stones experience the same change in momentum? Why?

Which stone causes more harm on the surface they hit? Why?

Which stone do you think is more damaged after the collision? Why?
