I agree with this and see were it comes from net force = (delta p)/t so momentum is conserved when net force equals zero... net force = (delta p)/t 0 = (delta p)/t however the following is not true 0 = (delta p)/t = P - Po were p is momentum and Po is used to indicate inital ...

**Physics**

momentum equals = mass (velocity) yet for problems I end up using this P = m (delta v) what allows us to simply put the delta infront of the v to find the momentum?

does the slope of a distance vs. time graph show the average velocity or the instaneous velocity I'm asked the question and don't know which one. I believe that it would be the instaneous value because the slope is refering to one point on the graph... not sure though
