## Which has more momentum a large truck moving at 70 km hr or a small truck moving at 70 km hr?

Answer: If two objects are running at the same velocity, the object with greater mass has more momentum compared to the object with a lesser mass since the formula of momentum is (momentum = mass × velocity) .

## Which has a larger momentum a large truck moving at 30 miles per hour or a small truck moving at 30 miles per hour?

Explanation: Momentum is defined as the amount of movement. Where P is the momentum, m is the mass of the object and v is the velocity. So you can see that if the mass increases, also does the momentum, so if both trucks move at the same velocity, then the truck with the bigger mas will have a bigger momentum.

## Which has more momentum a large truck?

Which has more momentum, a small car or a large truck traveling the same velocity? Momentum is proportional to both mass and velocity. Since both vehicles have the same velocity, the one with more mass has more momentum.

## Is a skier at the top of the mountain kinetic or potential energy?

The skier possesses gravitational potential energy at the top of a slope, which transforms into kinetic energy as he moves down the slope.

## Which has more momentum a car travelling at 50 mph or a truck travelling at the same velocity?

A moving object can have a large momentum if it has a large mass, a high speed, or both. It is harder to stop a large truck than a small car when both are moving at the same speed. The truck has more momentum than the car.

## Which has more momentum a 1000kg car moving 1m s or a 70kg person sprinting at 8m s?

Expert-Verified Answer A 1000 kg car moving 1 m/s have more momentum which is 1000 kg meters per second.

## Which has more momentum a large truck moving at 30m s or a small car moving at 30m s?

In physics terms, we say that the truck has greater momentum. Velocity is a term that refers to both speed and direction. For our purposes we will assume that the vehicles are traveling in a straight line. In that case, velocity and speed are the same.

## Which has a greater momentum a truck at rest or a 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.

## Does a large force always produce a larger impulse on an object than a smaller force does?

Yes; impulse is the force applied multiplied by the time during which it is applied (J=FΔt J = F Δ t ), so if a small force acts for a long time, it may result in a larger impulse than a large force acting for a small time.

## 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 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.

## Who has greater momentum?

The momentum of an object varies directly with the speed of the object. Two objects of different mass are moving at the same speed; the more massive object will have the greatest momentum. A less massive object can never have more momentum than a more massive object.

## Which has more momentum a huge truck that is moving or a small toy car that is moving?

Momentum is mass times velocity. So for a huge truck, the velocity of the truck is zero. But for the car, the car has both mass and velocity. So the small toy car will have more momentum because it actually has a momentum.

## Can a small object have more momentum than a huge truck?

A tiny bullet can have more momentum than a huge truck.
