## Question:

Explain the concept of conservation of linear and angular momentum and its applications.

## Conservation of Momentum

From Newton's second law of motion, if a body or system of the body performs a motion, then the linear and angular momentum of the body or the system of bodies remains the same. The internal forces operating within the system will not contribute any variation in the momentum.
