# What is the momentum of a truck with a mass of 4,500 kg traveling at 25 m/s?

Nov 14, 2016

Momentum =$112500 k g \cdot \frac{m}{s}$

#### Explanation:

Momentum is the motion contained in any object/mass and is simply the product of mass and velocity.

so $m o m e n t u m = m a s s \cdot v e l o c i t y$

$m o m e n t u m = 4500 \cdot 25 = 112500 k g \cdot \frac{m}{s}$

remember that its unit is $k g \cdot \frac{m}{s}$
