Calculating Momentum

Momentum is mass times velocity. It is abbreviated with a “p”. The equation is p = m*v Solve the following problems in the space provided. Write the equation first, substitute in the numbers and then solve: 1. A 100Kg man is running at 5.6m/s. What is his momentum?

2. Scott Macartney, a US Olympic Ski Team member was going 88 miles per hour (39 m/s) in the downhill ski race when lost his balance and fell. He has a mass of 65Kg. What was his momentum?

3. If a 40 Kg object has a momentum of 400Kg*m/s, how fast is it traveling?

4. If an object traveling at 20 m/s (about 44 miles per hour) has a momentum of 800Kg*m/s, what is the objectʼs mass?

5. How fast would a ping pong ball (mass 0.0027Kg) have to be traveling to have the same momentum as Scott Macartney just before he fell?

6. A locomotive has a mass of 200,000 Kg. It is moving at 10 mph (4.5 m/s). How fast would a car (mass 1000Kg) be traveling to have the same momentum?

7. In a sentence or two, describe what would happen if the car and locomotive in #6 above ran head on into each other.

8. If you can run 15 miles per hour (6.7 m/s) while holding a 8 pound (3.5 Kg) shot put, how much momentum does the shot put have?
