1. 0.24\,\text{s}
2. 4.15\,\text{s}
3. 62\,\text{s}
4. 600\,\text{s}

#### 8.2Conservation of Momentum

25.

In the equation L = Iω, what is I?

1. Linear momentum
2. Angular momentum
3. Torque
4. Moment of inertia
26.

Give an example of an isolated system.

#### 8.3Elastic and Inelastic Collisions

27.

In which type of collision is kinetic energy conserved?

1. Elastic
2. Inelastic
28.

In physics, what are structureless particles that cannot rotate or spin called?

1. Elastic particles
2. Point masses
3. Rigid masses
29.

Two objects having equal masses and velocities collide with each other and come to a rest. What type of a collision is this and why?

1. Elastic collision, because internal kinetic energy is conserved
2. Inelastic collision, because internal kinetic energy is not conserved
3. Elastic collision, because internal kinetic energy is not conserved
4. Inelastic collision, because internal kinetic energy is conserved
30.
