Momentum Moving objects have momentum! Momentum depends on both velocity AND mass!
An object’s momentum is in the same direction as its velocity
Momentum = mass x velocity <ul><li>Momentum is often represented by the letter “p” in equations i.e. p=mv means momentum=mass x velocity </li></ul>
Law of conservation of momentum <ul><li>The total amount of momentum in a system is conserved. </li></ul><ul><li>This means that momentum, like energy and mass, cannot be created or destroyed-but it can be transferred to another object, though!! </li></ul>
Marcus’ most excellent example: <ul><li>If a baseball team is winning, and suddenly the other team makes a comeback, the momentum has SHIFTED to the other team, but the momentum was not destroyed, nor was any NEW momentum created!! </li></ul>
