# How to Calculate and Solve for Linear Momentum | Motion

The image above represents linear momentum. To calculate linear momentum, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are mass (m)Â andÂ velocity (v).

The formula for calculating linear momentum:

p = mv

Where;

p = Momentum
m = Mass
v = Velocity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the momentum when the mass is 8 and the velocity is 12.

This implies that;

m = Mass = 8
v = Velocity = 12

Then, p = mv
p = 8 x 12
p = 96

Therefore, theÂ momentumÂ isÂ 96 Kgm/s.

### Calculating the Mass when the Momentum and the Velocity are Given

m = p / v

Where;

m = Mass
p = Momentum
v = Velocity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the mass when the momentum is 40 and the velocity is 18.

This implies that;

p = Momentum = 40
v = Velocity = 18

So, m = p / v
m = 40 / 18
m = 2.22

Therefore, theÂ massÂ isÂ 2.22 kg.

### Calculating the Velocity when the Momentum and the Mass are Given

v = p / m

Where;

v = Velocity
p = Momentum
m = Mass

Let’s solve an example;
Find the velocity when the momentum is 35 and the mass is 10.

This implies that;

p = Momentum = 35
m = Mass = 10

So, v = p / m
v = 35 / 10
v = 3.5

Therefore, theÂ velocityÂ isÂ 3.5 m/s.
