# Which has more momentum, a 7kg object moving at 4m/s or a 6kg object moving at 7m/s?

Apr 21, 2018

$\text{6 kg}$ object

#### Explanation:

Momentum ($\text{p}$) is given by

$\text{p = mv}$

$\text{p"_1 = "7 kg × 4 m/s = 28 kg m/s}$
$\text{p"_2 = "6 kg × 7 m/s = 42 kg m/s}$

${\text{p"_2 > "p}}_{1}$
