The momentum of the 8kg object moving at 4m/s is 32 kg m/s, and the momentum of the 7kg object moving at 5m/s is 35 kg m/s. Therefore, the 7kg object moving at 5m/s has more momentum.

- An astronaut with a mass of #80 kg# is floating in space. If the astronaut throws an object with a mass of #32 kg# at a speed of #1/5 m/s#, how much will his speed change by?
- A ball with a mass of # 3 kg# is rolling at #2 m/s# and elastically collides with a resting ball with a mass of #4 kg#. What are the post-collision velocities of the balls?
- Is momentum conserved in an elastic collision but not in an inelastic collision?
- An astronaut with a mass of #70 kg# is floating in space. If the astronaut throws a #15 kg# object at a speed of #5/4 m/s#, how much will his speed change by?
- How can I prove an elastic collision?
