The image above represents a linear momentum.

To compute for the linear momentum, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **mass (m) **and **velocity (v).**

The formula for calculating linear momentum:

p = mv

Where;

p = Momentum

m = Mass

v = Velocity

Let’s solve an example;

Find the linear momentum of a mass of 44 and a velocity of 38.

This implies that;

m = Mass = 44

v = Velocity = 38

p = mv

p = 44 x 38

p = 1672

Therefore, the **linear momentum** is **1672 Kgm/s.**

**Calculating the Mass when Linear Momentum and Velocity is Given.**

m = ^{p} / _{v}

Where;

m = Mass

p = Momentum

v = Velocity

Let’s solve an example;

Find the mass with a linear momentum of 320 and a velocity of 80.

This implies that;

p = Momentum = 320

v = Velocity = 80

m = ^{p} / _{v}

m = ^{320} / _{80}

m = 4

Therefore, the **mass** is **4 kg.**
