ahyaa Posted November 18, 2013 Share Posted November 18, 2013 I was wondering if there are cases in which momentum or energy are not both conserved together ie energy conserved, but momentum is not. The source of my confusion stems from the explanation that momentum is conserved in a "closed system" (no matter exchange, no external forces) while energy is conserved in an "isolated system" (no mass or energy exchange with environment).
