To perform this experiment we rolled a steel ball down a ramp, after which it collided and was stuck in a wooden block. The momentum before and after the collision was calculated. Our results showed that before the collision, the momentum of the steel ball was .113 kg(m/s) .0051 kg(m/s). After the collision, the momentum of the steel ball a
