What is the magnitude of the momentum of a sprinter whose mass is 51 kg and who is running at a speed of 10 m/s? = 510 510 kg·m/s 2. 1/1 points A baseball has a mass of about 155 g. What is the magnitude of the momentum of a baseball thrown at a speed of 99 miles per hour? (Note that you need to convert mass to kilograms and speed to meters/second. A mile is 1.6 kilometers or 1600 meters.) = 6.82 6.82 kg·m/s 3. 6/6 points An electron travels at speed | | = 0.997 c , where c =3e8 m/s is the speed of light. It travels in the direction given by the unit vector
