# Collisions

Students will be observing colliding marbles, which demonstrate the law of conservation of momentum. The momentum of a moving object is the product of its mass and its velocity (p = mv). If all of the marbles are identical in mass and size, a moving marble will transfer its momentum to a stationary marble when they collide.
