# What is the momentum of an 10 kg bowling ball rolling at 3 m/s?

Mar 10, 2018

$\text{30 kg m/s}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Momentum = Mass × Velocity = 10 kg × 3 m/s = 30 kg m/s}$

Its momentum is $30 \setminus \text{kg m/s}$.

#### Explanation:

Momentum is defined by the following equation:

$p = m v$

where $m$ is the mass of the object in kilograms, $v$ is the velocity of the object in meters per second

So, we got:

$p = 10 \setminus \text{kg"*3 \ "m/s}$

$= 30 \setminus \text{kg m/s}$
