The Conservation of Linear Momentum and the Application of the Principal Direction of Force

In this article, the authors describe the concepts, theory and mechanics of the Conservation of Linear Momentum when evaluating vehicle approach speeds. Though it is a useful way of assessing vehicle speed when two vehicles approach each other, the methods and principles of the Conservation of Linear Momentum are sometimes challenging for investigators to employ in actual crash investigations.
