Linear Momentum Lab Activity
Page 3 of 12
As we learned on the previous page, the linear momentum of an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by the velocity of the object.
Thus, if we know the mass and velocity of an object, we can find its momentum. In addition, the direction of the velocity of an object is the same as the direction of its momentum, and so if we know the direction an object is moving, we know its momentum is pointed in the same direction.
