Unformatted text preview: momentum. In addition, both are related to velocity in some way. In fact, combining the two equations K = mv 2 and p = mv we can see that: K = This simple equation can be quite convenient for relating the two different concepts. This section, dealing exclusively with the momentum of a single particle, might seem out of place after a section on systems of particles. However, when we combine the definition of momentum with our knowledge of systems of particles, we can generate a powerful conservation law: the conservation of momentum....
