# How can momentum be increased?

By increasing the velocity of the object.

(If the same object does not have to be used then by using an object with larger mass.)

If the goal is to increase an object's momentum, then its mass is probably fixed, so you will need to work on it to increase its velocity in order to give it more momentum.

The initial object can be substituted for another with a larger mass if the object can be changed for another with the same velocity; in this case, the larger mass will have a greater momentum than the initial object when it is given the same velocity.

The above can be explained mathematically as follows: momentum = mass × velocity

Momentum can be increased by increasing the mass or velocity of an object. The momentum of an object is directly proportional to its mass and velocity according to the equation ( p = mv ), where ( p ) is momentum, ( m ) is mass, and ( v ) is velocity. Therefore, increasing either the mass or velocity of an object will result in an increase in momentum.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
