## What is the magnitude of its momentum?

p = mv

The magnitude of the momentum of an object is p = mv.

### How do you find initial momentum?

The Momentum Calculator uses the formula p=mv, or momentum (p) is equal to mass (m) times velocity (v).

**Is magnitude and momentum the same?**

Momentum has both magnitude and direction and thus is a vector quantity. The units of momentum are kg m s−1 or newton seconds, N s. This is often referred to as linear momentum in order to distinguish it from angular momentum.

**How is initial momentum equal to final momentum?**

When something is conserved in physics, the initial value is equal to the final value. For momentum, this means that the total initial momentum of a system will be equal to the total final momentum. Newton’s second law states that the force on an object will be equal to the change in the object’s momentum with time.

## What is the magnitude of a matrix?

It is the maximum relative stretching that the matrix does to any vector. With the vector 2-norm, the unit ball expands by a factor equal to the norm.

### How do you calculate momentum?

In physics, momentum is a quantity that can be calculated by multiplying the mass and velocity of the object involved. Momentum is expressed by the letter p. So momentum equals mass times velocity or p = m x v. Therefore, if any object of any mass is not moving, its momentum is zero because its velocity is zero.

**What is the formula for momentum?**

Steps Write down the formula p = m v {\\displaystyle p=mv}. Find the mass. Mass is the amount of matter in an object. Find the velocity. Velocity is the speed and the direction that the object travels. Following the formula p = m v {\\displaystyle p=mv}, plug in the mass and the velocity. Multiply the mass by the velocity. That is the momentum!

**What is an example of momentum?**

Momentum is defined as the amount of motion occurring in something that is moving, or the force that drives something forward to keep it moving. An example of momentum is how quickly a car is moving down a hill.
