A flock of geese is flying south for the winter. In order to maintain a "V" shape, each goose is flying at the same constant velocity. Which goose will have the most momentum?

Whichever has the most mass.


Literally, the biggest goose. Since momentum is given by the formula #p = mv#, where #m# and #v# the mass and velocity of the object respectively, if all geese are flying at the same velocity, the one with the greatest mass will have the most momentum.
