What is the magnitude of the momentum of
a. A 3000 kg truck traveling at 15 m/s?
b. A 200 g baseball thrown at 40 m/s?
Step 1 of 3:
In this question, we need to find magnitude of momentum
In part a , for a truck
Mass of truck
Velocity of truck
In part a , for a baseball
Mass of baseball
Velocity of baseball
Step 2 of 3:
We can find momentum of truck using relation
Substituting values we get
Hence we have momentum of truck as
