NAME: ____________________________DATE: _______________ MOMENTUM CONSERVATIONMOM.2 – I can calculate the momentum of an object/system with direction and properunits.MOM.3 – I can draw an interaction diagram and specify the system and thesurroundings.MOM.4 – I can draw and analyze momentum bar charts.MOM.5 – I can use momentum conservation to solve different problems.
The pretty princess Pricilla (50 kg) is being pursued by a pack of perilous pirates. Pricilla isrunning North with a speed of 3 m/s. However, the large and lecherous pirate Larry (75 kg) iswaiting behind a tree up ahead. In a surprise attack, Larry runs 3 m/s South into Pricilla andcatches her.a.Draw an interaction diagram and identify system/surroundings for this situation.
Create before and after momentum bar charts for this situation. You must label each bar.
After Larry has picked up Pricilla, what will be their new

to Pricilla’s velocity change as a result of this interaction.Explain/justify your answer.
