simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Momentum

Momentum can be considered the "power" when an object is moving, meaning how much force it can have on another object. For example, a bowling ball (large mass) pushed very slowly (low velocity) can hit a glass door and not break it, while a baseball (small mass) can be thrown fast (high velocity) and break the same ...

In simple terms, momentum is considered to be a quantity of motion. This quantity is measurable because if an object is moving and has mass, then it has momentum. Something that has a large mass has a large momentum or something that is moving very fast has a large momentum. Often times we discuss people or ...

An object has a momentum if it has a velocity. Momentum is calculated by multiplying the mass and velocity together. Impulse is directly related to momentum because impulse is a term describing an object's change in momentum. In other words, if an object changes speed, then its momentum changes. By definition this ...

MOMENTUM Look at the given pictures. If both the car and the truck have same speed, which one can be stopped first? Of course all you say, it is hard to stop truck relative to car. Well, what is the reason making car stop easier? They have same speed but different masses. Can mass effect the stopping time or distance?

One example is the use of air bags in automobiles. Air bags are used in automobiles because they are able to minimize the effect of the force on an object involved in a collision. Air bags accomplish this by extending the time required to stop the momentum of the driver and passenger. When encountering a car collision, the ...

The colliding lumps of clay, on the other hand, are an excellent example of an inelastic collision, or one in which kinetic energy is not conserved. The total energy in a given system, such as that created by the two lumps of clay in collision, is conserved; however, kinetic energy may be transformed, for instance, into heat ...

Consider the term "momentum" outside the world of physics, as applied, for example, in the realm of politics. If a presidential candidate sees a gain in public- opinion polls, then wins a debate and embarks on a whirlwind speaking tour, the media comments that he has "gained momentum." As with momentum in the ...

Aug 29, 2014 ... A wrecking ball. A moving train. A cricket ball in flight. A falling stone. Any object in motion. Motion is when an object moves , its mass or its speed (velocity) is not considered in this definition. So whether it is a football or a glacier as long as it is moving irrespective of its speed it is in motion. However ...
