What is the magnitude of the momentum of a sprinter whose mass is 63 kg and who is running at a speed of 10 m/s? = 630 630 kg·m/s Solution or Explanation For speeds small compared to c , momentum is approximately mv . 2. 1/1 points Question: MI2 01.X.43 A baseball has a mass of about 155 g. What is the magnitude of the momentum of a baseball thrown at a speed of 93 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.) = 6.41 6.41 kg·m/s Solution or Explanation For speeds small compared to c , momentum is approximately mv . Mass is 0.155 kg. Speed is ( 93 mi/hr)*(1600 m/mi)*(1 hr/(3600 s)). The due date for this assignment is past. Your work can be viewed below, but no changes can be made.
