The center of the moon is approximately 384000km from the center of the earth and orbits from the earth in 27,3 days . If a moon has a mass of 7,35×10^22 kg. what is the magnitude of its momentum?
Well we can first calculate the speed of the moon, which will be:
Then, momentum is given by the equation:
#m#is the mass of the object in kilograms
#v#is the velocity of the object in meters per second
So, we get:
