Which has a greater momentum a heavy truck at rest or a moving automobile?
The momentum of the heavy truck at rest is zero and so is definitely less than a moving automobile no matter how lighter it is than the heavy truck and how fast it is going - as long as it is moving. ...
Asked in Physics, Skateboarding
Which has the greater mass a heavy truck at rest or a rolling skateboard which has greater momentum?
The truck has the most mass, but because it is at rest, the skateboard has the most momentum. ...

When a wrecking ball hits a wall it is not moving fast How can it have enough momentum to knock down a wall?
Momentum is a function of both mass and speed. The wrecking ball isn't moving very fast, but it is extremely heavy; that is where its momentum comes from. ...

Would it be more difficult to stop a truck carrying a heavy load or to stop the same truck empty?
A truck that is more heavy with the same velocity whil the truck is less heavy it will have more momentum!! ...

Why is it harder to stop a heavy football player than a lighter football player?
A heavy football player is harder to stop because it has a greater momentum. In physics, momentum is equal to the mass of an object times its velocity. If a 50 kilogram kid and a 70 kilogram man were running at the same speed, the man would be harder to stop because he would have a greater momentum. ...
Asked in Motorcycles
How can a heavy moving van have the same momentum as a small motorcycle?
Momentum = Mass x Velocity. They could have the same momentum if the motorcycle is going fast and the van is going slow. If the van weighs ten times as much as the motorcycle, and is driving 5 mph it would have the same momentum as the motorcycle driving 50 mph. ...
Asked in Physics, Technology, Scientific Method
Does a heavier object always have more inertia than a lighter object?
Inertia is "rotary momentum"; an object's ability to continue spinning when a decelerating force is applied. Just as a heavy object takes more effort to stop from the same speed as a light object, so does a heavy object take more effort to stop from turning at the same speed as a light object. So assuming they are turning at the same angular velocity, the heavier one has a larger inertia. Otherwise, remember that inertia is also proportional to angular velocity. ...
Asked in Physics
Which has greater momentum a heavy truck or a moving automobile?
Momentum depends on both mass AND velocity. So if they are both going the same speed the truck would have more momentum. However, a car traveling at 44.7m/s (100mph) could have more momentum that a truck traveling at 0.1m/s p = m * v Momentum (p) is equal to the mass (m) of the object times its velocity (v). All in SI units. ...
Which has more momentum heavy truck light truck or do they both have the same momentum?
A truck that is more massive with the same velocity as the truck that is less massive will definitely have more momentum. This is illustrated in the equation for momentum: p = mv Where p is momentum which is measured in Newton seconds, m is mass which is measured in kilograms, and v is velocity, measured in meters per second. If you plug in a larger mass for that same equivalent velocity, it will accordingly have more momentum. Also, if you just think about...

A ball rolls down a hill and hits a box the momentum of the ball decreases what happens to its momentum?
Momentum (as energy) isn't lost, it is transferred. Momentum is lost to friction when the ball is rolling, but in the described situation, the momentum is basically all transferred to the box upon impact. The box may tip over if light enough, or the box may break, or if heavy enough and built well enough, the box may absorb the impact and be left seemingly untouched. If the ball continues to roll after impact (if it bounces over/around/off of the box, then...

Is heavy bleeding and clots after Mirena removal the first period?
Removal of Mirena in itself does not cause heavy bleeding and clots. Such symptoms are likely your period. ...
