How to Calculate and Solve for Mass, Volume and Linear Momentum | The Calculator Encyclopedia

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.
