MOMENTUM

The quantity of movement of a moving object

EQUATION OF MOMENTUM

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

Momentum is only for moving objects.

When an object is stationary, the momentum is 0.


The momentum of a stationary object with a weight of 2000kg is 0.

Law of Conservation of Momentum

The momentum of objects before an event is equal to the momentum of the object after an event.
