# A rocket with a mass of 1,000 kilograms is moving at a speed of 20 meters per second. What is the magnitude of the momentum?

Momentum is given by the equation,

And so, we get,

- A ball with a mass of #5 kg# moving at #20 m/s# hits a still ball with a mass of #15 kg#. If the first ball stops moving, how fast is the second ball moving?
- The velocity of an object with a mass of #3 kg# is given by #v(t)= sin 2 t + cos 9 t #. What is the impulse applied to the object at #t= ( 7 pi)/ 12 #?
- A ball with a mass of #6 kg # and velocity of #4 m/s# collides with a second ball with a mass of #3 kg# and velocity of #- 2 m/s#. If #75%# of the kinetic energy is lost, what are the final velocities of the balls?
- The velocity of an object with a mass of #3 kg# is given by #v(t)= sin 4 t + cos 4 t #. What is the impulse applied to the object at #t= pi /4 #?
- A completely inelastic collision occurs between two balls of wet putty that move directly toward each other along a vertical axis. ?
