Modeling the Exchange of Momentum Between a Ligand and an Enzyme

Download2
Highlights: An exercise that computationally models the elastic collision between a ligand and an enzyme.
Abstract: Students use an analytic approach to express quantitatively the exchange of momentum between two colliding particles. In the exercise students modify a line of code that expresses momentum transfer from one particle to the other. This exercise is meant to be given very early in students' experience with code and has several scaffolds to support them parsing the code. In the larger Diffusion sequence this is the first activity.
