Question

If a 3 kg object has a momentum of 33 kg ms whats its velocity?

1 Answer


  • Momentum = (mass) x (speed)

      33 kg-m/s = (3 kg) x (speed)

    Divide each side by  3 kg :

       (33 kg-m/s) / (3 kg) = speed

             11 m/s                = speed

    (You asked for velocity, but didn't give us any information about the direction
    in which the object is moving.  So we can only work with the speed.)
