Momentum A moving object has a momentum determined by its mass and velocity. Momentum is the product of mass and velocity Momentum is represented by P and is measured in kg.ms -1 . Consider a car of mass m moving with a velocity v o . It is acted upon by a force F which produces an acceleration a on it. It has a velocity v f after a time t F = ma m(v f – v o ) = P , the change in momentum in the interval t F f o v v v a t t - = = ( ) f o m v v t - = Momentum is a vector quantity 1

This leads us to conclude that: Force is the rate of change of momentum. Kinetic energy and momentum The kinetic energy K of a moving object can be expressed in terms of its momentum. 2 1 2 K mv = 0 ( ΔP Δ ) = t F f m v v t = - 2 2 2 m v m = 2 2 P m = 2

A 0.5 kg ball is thrown against a wall at an angle of 53 o as shown on the right with a velocity of 10 m.s -1 speed and at an angle 53 o . Find the change in momentum of the ball. 3 i 4 j P f P i 53 o = 3 i + 4 j = -3 i + 4 j -3 i = 4 j = -6 i 53 o 53 o 127 o 127 P i drawn from the origin makes an 4
