In this activity students have the chance to test the conservation of momentum in particle collisions. Using data from the ATLAS experiment at CERN they determine the total momentum from all particles tracked after a particle collision and they calculate (magnitude & direction) the missing momentum.

Prior Knowledge Requirements

Students need to be familiar with the conservation of momentum, the elementary particles,drawing and adding vectors.
