# Which has more momentum, an object with a mass of 9kg moving at 8m/s or an object with a mass of 12kg moving at 1m/s?

${P}_{1} > {P}_{1}$

#### Explanation:

$P = m \cdot v$

${P}_{1} = 9 \cdot 8 = 72 \text{ } k g \cdot \frac{m}{s}$

${P}_{2} = 12 \cdot 1 = 12 \text{ } k g \cdot \frac{m}{s}$

${P}_{1} > {P}_{1}$
