How do you differentiate between momentum and kinetic energy?
Consider an object with mass
Its momentum is the product of the mass and velocity
it is a vector quantity and so direction has to be assigned to the quantity.
the equation to calculate its linear or translational
if it is rotating it has rotational Kinetic energy and has the equation
if it is rotating and traveling in a straight line the total KE is the sum of both components
the units are Joules , and KE is a scalar quantity.
