# What is the momentum of a 3-kg object moving at 5 m/s?

May 13, 2018

$\textcolor{b l u e}{15 k g {m}^{-} 1}$

#### Explanation:

Momentum is is given by:

$p = m v$

Where:

$\boldsymbol{p}$ is momentum, $\boldsymbol{m}$ is mass in kg and $\boldsymbol{v}$ is velocity in $m {s}^{-} 1$

$p = 3 k g \times \frac{5 m}{s} = \frac{15 k g m}{s} = 15 k g {m}^{-} 1$
