## 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.

## What is the momentum of a car?

Answer and Explanation: The momentum of a parked car is zero because only objects that are in motion can have momentum. Momentum is a measure of how much motion an object has. This can be seen in the formula for momentum, which is as follows: p = mv, where p = momentum, m = mass and v = velocity.

## Which will have greater momentum between a truck or a car?

And since you mentioned that the car and the truck has the same velocity, we can still assume that a truck has more mass, than the car. Thus the truck has more momentum.

## Does higher velocity mean higher momentum?

Mass and velocity are both directly proportional to the momentum. If you increase either mass or velocity, the momentum of the object increases proportionally. If you double the mass or velocity you double the momentum.

## What is the momentum of a 1500 kg car?

Therefore p=1500*20 = 30,000 kg m/s.

## How to find momentum?

Step 1: List the mass and velocity of the object. Step 2: Convert any values into SI units (kg, m, s). Step 3: Multiply the mass and velocity of the object together to get the momentum of the object.

## What is momentum in 1 marks?

Momentum is the quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity. it formula = mass velocity.

## Which has 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.

## Do heavier cars have more momentum?

Heavier cars have more momentum, so they travel further, given the same amount of friction. Note that in the Swing Time activity, the pendulum speed was also not affected by weight, but heavier pendulums have more momentum and continue to swing for a longer time.

## 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.

## Which will have a larger momentum when moving at the same speed?

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.

## What is the relationship between the momentum of the car and the momentum of the truck?

The change of momentum for the car is more than the change of momentum for the truck, but the changes are equal and opposite leading to the conservation of momentum. The way you have written the change in momentum, both vehicles continue moving in the same direction after the collision as they did before.

## Are a truck and a car moving with the same kinetic energy?

Both the truck and the car had same kinetic energy and hence same amount of work is needed to be done. As retarding force applied is same for both, therefore, both the truck and the car travel the same distance before coming to rest.

## What has the greater effect on momentum mass or velocity?

You can see from the equation that momentum is directly proportional to the object’s mass (m) and velocity (v). Therefore, the greater an object’s mass or the greater its velocity, the greater its momentum. A large, fast-moving object has greater momentum than a smaller, slower object.
