.0134 kgm/s= .0073 kgm/s + .0041 kgm/s.0134 kgm/s= .01143 kgm/s, 16% error Sources of Error: A major flaw of the calculations performed had to deal with the initial velocitycalculation, because kinetic energy may have been displaced due to friction from the ramp, thuschanging the velocity and momentum calculated.
