Momentum

By Jada

Momentum Rules and Laws

Momentum (kg m/s) = Mass (kg) x Velocity (m/s)

Momentum is a vector and an indication of how hard it would be to stop an object


The law of momentum conservation can be stated as follows. For a collision occurring between object 1 and object 2 in an isolated system, the total momentum of the two objects before the collision is equal to the total momentum of the two objects after the collision.

Momentum and Types of Collisions in Physics

Examples

If an object is at rest and has a mass of 2000kg it will have zero momentum

But if an object has a mass of 2000kg and is moving at 20m/s it will have momentum
