What is the formula for momentum? Mass x Velocity
What is momentum? A characteristic of a moving object that is related to the mass and velocity of a moving object.
What is the unit for momentum? kilogram times meter per second, kg*m/s
Which has more momentum: an elephant or a flea? You don't know because you don't know the speed they are moving at.
which has more momentum: A car moving at 2 m/s and weighing 500 kg, or a dog moving at 110 m/s and weighing 10 kg? the dog, 1100 kg*m/s is more momentum than 1000 kg*m/s
