# How much momentum does a 1000 kg car traveling at 35 m/s have?

Apr 5, 2018

$35000 N$

#### Explanation:

The equation for momentum is
$p = m v$

Where:
$p =$momentum
$m =$mass of object in kg
$v =$velocity of object

By simply plugging in the numbers into the equation:
$1000 k g \times 35 \frac{m}{s}$
You get
$= 35000 k g \frac{m}{s}$ or $35000 N$

[Do take note that $1$ Newton is the same as $1 k g \frac{m}{s}$]
