Interactions Between Objects in Simple Closed Systems

What is a simple closed system?

In this post, we conduct an investigation to describe and analyse one-dimensional (collinear) and two-dimensional interactions of objects in simple closed systems, as a part of the Preliminary Physics course under the module Dynamics and sub-part Momentum, Energy and Simple Systems. A simple closed system is a physical system that does not allow the transfer of matter in or out of the system.

 

What is an example of an experiment in a simple closed system?

An example of an experiment in a simple closed system is a pulley system. The following two videos go into further details about an investigation that can be conducted.
