Answer:

#35000 N#

Explanation:

The equation for momentum is
#p=mv#

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

By simply plugging in the numbers into the equation:
#1000kg xx 35m/s#
You get
#=35000 kg m/s# or #35000N#

[Do take note that #1# Newton is the same as #1kg m/s#]
