Formula: Mechanical momentum

Momentum

Unit
Mechanical momentum of a body, e.g. a spaceship, a planet, a car, a particle, etc. The momentum is the product of mass \(m\) and velocity \(v\) of the body.

Velocity

Unit
Velocity of the body. The faster the body moves, the greater the momentum \(p\).

Mass

Unit
Mass of the considered body. The greater the mass, the greater the momentum \(p\).
