In this lesson, we will learn:
- the term "momentum" in everyday usage versus the physics definition
- standard units for momentum calculations
- problem solving with momentum
- Momentum is the "quantity of motion", and can be thought of as how difficult it is to stop an object in motion.
momentum, in kilogram meters per second (kg∙m/s)
mass, in kilograms (kg)
velocity, in meters per second (m/s)
