Momentum, mass, velocity

Classical mechanics index

Momentum can be thought of as the "strength of movement in a body". It is proportional to mass and velocity. This calc finds the unknown in the mass-velocity-momentum equation.

Momentum is an important quantity. In any system, momentum is conserved. This property helps the calculation of mechanical changes.
