# How much momentum does a 6 kg object moving at 1/4 m/s have?

Mar 2, 2018

$\frac{3}{2} {\text{kg m s}}^{-} 1$

#### Explanation:

The momentum of an object moving along a straight line, $p$, is related to its mass $m$ and velocity $v$ through the following equation:

$p = m v$, and here:

$m = 6 \text{kg}$

$v = \frac{1}{4} \text{m/s}$

Inputting:

$p = 6 \cdot \frac{1}{4} = \frac{3}{2} {\text{kg m s}}^{-} 1$
