What is Momentum?
Anything that moves
has momentum (see also kinetic
The amount of momentum that an object has depends on
how fast it is moving (its velocity) and on the mass of the object.
momentum = mass x velocity.
The equation is written as
p = m x v
where p = momentum
m = mass and v = velocity.
This equation is important!
called "kilogram metres per second".
