## Which has a greater momentum?

Momentum is directly proportional to the object’s mass and also its velocity. Thus the greater an object’s mass or the greater its velocity, the greater its momentum.

## What has more momentum a ship or a bullet?

In general, because a container ship has such a much larger mass compared to a bullet, even at quite slow speeds, its momentum could be larger. However, if the bullet is traveling at an extremely high speed, its momentum could also be high despite its small mass.

## Which has a greater momentum heavy truck at rest or moving skateboard?

Hence, the momentum of the moving skateboard is greater than the momentum of a heavy truck at rest.

## Which will have greater momentum between a truck or car moving with same velocity?

A moving truck has more momentum than a car moving at the same speed because the truck has more mass.

## Which object has no momentum?

The momentum of any object that is at rest is 0. Objects at rest do not have momentum – they do not have any mass in motion. Both variables – mass and velocity – are important in comparing the momentum of two objects.

## What travels faster than a bullet?

In experiments performed by the MERIT project, lasers shock microscopic tin samples and create microjets that travel at several kilometers per second. Simulations are critical to understand the dynamics of jet formation.

## What is more faster than bullet?

Speed of light—faster than a speeding bullet.

## Is momentum of gun equal to momentum of bullet?

Before firing, the total momentum of the system was zero. When the bullet is fired it gains some momentum (due to velocity acquired by it). In response, the gun moves in the opposite direction such that its momentum is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction to the momentum of the bullet.

## What are 2 ways to increase impulse?

Impulse can also be increased by increasing the time interval or by increasing the magnitude of change in momentum. The change in momentum can be increased by increasing the velocity of the body.

## Which car is harder to stop and why?

Yes, heavier cars are harder to stop because of inertia. In fact, how hard something is to stop is basically the definition of inertia. Inertia is a property of matter, so the more matter (weight), the more inertia, and the harder the car is to stop.

## What linear momentum means?

Linear momentum is defined as the product of a system’s mass multiplied by its velocity. In symbols, linear momentum is expressed as p = mv.

## Is momentum equal to impulse?

An object’s change in momentum is equal to its impulse. Impulse is a quantity of force times the time interval. Impulse is not equal to momentum itself; rather, it’s the increase or decrease of an object’s momentum.

## What is impulse equal to?

Impulse ( F Δ t ) Product of the average force exerted on an object and the time interval during which the force is exerted. Impulse is equal to the change in momentum ( ) and is sometimes represented with the symbol .

## On what two factors does momentum depend on?

Momentum depends on mass and velocity.

## Which has a greater momentum marble A or B?

Marble A has greater momentum. C. Marble B would likely be thrown away because of its small mass and velocity..

## Which has a greater momentum a 1000 kg truck at rest or a 100 kg bicycle in motion?

Taking the formula for momentum to be p=mv this is the mass multiplied by the velocity. Although the semi truck certainly has a larger mass, it is not in motion and therefore does not have any momentum. The bicycle however has both mass and velocity and therefore has the larger momentum of the pair.

## Which has greater momentum the jeepney or motorcycle?

The momentum is directly proportional to the mass and velocity of an object . This means that the greater the mass or velocity of the object, the greater its momentum. Since the jeepney is bigger which means that it has a greater mass and faster than the motorcycle, therefore, the jeepney has greater momentum.

## Which has a greater momentum an elephant at rest or an ant in motion?

Momentum combines both mass and velocity. Ant has a greater momentum because of it is moving. Momentum of the elephant would be zero because it is at rest. Was this answer helpful?
