    False. Momentum is always conserved in a closed system.

    False indeed. Thanks to the spatial symmetry of our universe, momentum is always always conserved. You should take a glance at Noether's Theorem (if you are familiar with the Lagrangian).

    Oh, come on z_t, now you're just showing off. ಠ_ಠ I doubt that someone unfamiliar with introductory physics will know anything about Lagrangians.
