It gives us the momentum equation respect to velocity...

#### Explanation:

The function or equation for kinetic energy is:

Taking the derivative respect to velocity

Take the constants out to get:

Now use the power rule, which states that

Simplify to get:

If you learn physics, you should clearly see that this is the equation for momentum, and states that:
