# Which has more momentum, a #8kg# object moving at #9m/s# or a #4kg# object moving at #7m/s#?

The one with the mass of

The momentum of an object can be calculated using the formula p=mv where p is the momentum and m is the mass and v is the velocity.

So, the momentum of the first object is:

while the second object:

So the object which has more momentum is the first object

To calculate momentum, you use the equation (p = mv), where (p) is momentum, (m) is mass, and (v) is velocity.

For the first object: (p = 8 , \text{kg} \times 9 , \text{m/s} = 72 , \text{kg m/s}).

For the second object: (p = 4 , \text{kg} \times 7 , \text{m/s} = 28 , \text{kg m/s}).

Therefore, the 8kg object moving at 9m/s has more 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.

- How does the center of mass change position?
- A railroad freight car coasts along a level track. It collides and couples with a second car, initially at rest and with brakes released. What percentage of the freight car's initial energy is preserved in the two-coupled cars after collision?
- A ball with a mass of #12 kg# moving at #1 m/s# hits a still ball with a mass of #8 kg#. If the first ball stops moving, how fast is the second ball moving?
- A ball with a mass of #7 kg# moving at #6 m/s# hits a still ball with a mass of #9 kg#. If the first ball stops moving, how fast is the second ball moving?
- A ball with a mass of #15 kg# moving at #6 m/s# hits a still ball with a mass of #21 kg#. If the first ball stops moving, how fast is the second ball moving? How much kinetic energy was lost as heat in the collision?
