# Physics Tutorials Section 6. Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum In the Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum section of Physics we explore Physics Tutorials which guide your through the various skills and learning material within this section. We also provide online Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum Calculators which allow you to calculate specific Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum formula in support of the tutorials or to check and verify your own calculations in support of your homework, coursework or thesis.

This section is about equilibrium and quantities that are relevant to it. By understanding the various types of collision, you will be able to understand concepts such as the centre of mass (gravity), moment of force, torque, linear momentum and impulse, as well as the laws of conservation of momentum and kinetic energy in one and two dimensions.

In this Centre of Mass and Linear Momentum section of Physics we cover the following topics:
