What is the equation for momentum?
Momentum is the mass of the body multiplied by its velocity
Mass (kg) x Velocity (m/s) = momentum
What is the unit of momentum?
The units of momentum are the products of the units of mass (kg) and velocity (m/s), leaving the units in kilogram meters/second (kg m/s)
If an object is at rest, and has a mass of 2000 kg, what it its momentum?
Because the object is at rest (not moving) the momentum of it equates to zero despite the mass of the object
