An object that decreases its speed also decreases the magnitude of its velocity and decreases the magnitude of its momentum.

Momentum is mass time velocity. Less velocity, less momentum.

Technically, velocity is a vector and therefor momentum is a vector.

One can speak of smaller or larger magnitudes of a vector, but not smaller and larger vectors because vectors have magnitude and direction. Speed is the magnitude of velocity.

The property you are looking for is the objects momentum. Momentum = Mass * Velocity.

Any moving object with mass has momentum, since p = mv, where p is momentum, m is mass, and v is velocity.

As the velocity decreases, the momentum increases. Mass is the matter inside of something and momentum is how hard it is to stop something. Therefore momentum needs mass to function because without mass there would be no momentum. So think of the sentence above like this: velocity ( a measure of momentum) decreases, the momentum (including mass inside an object) goes up therefore making the mass increase while the velocity decreases.

To find the magnitude of momentum you use the formula: p=mv So, if an object has a mass (and if it exists then it would), and if it is moving (has a velocity), then yes, it has momentum.

Momentum is a scalar quantity dependent on mass and velocity. P (momentum) = mass x velocity. Since an object that is not moving has zero velocity, p = mass x zero, and thus p = 0 for all stationary objects.

Linear momentum and kinetic energy are both functions of mass and velocity.

momentum is caused by inertia. all objects have inertia, which means if they are moving at a certain velocity or are at rest they will continue to move at that velocity or remain at rest unless acted on by a force. Objects of more mass have greater inertia, so the amount of momentum is equal to the product of an objects mass and the magnitude of its velocity.

Momentum is mass times velocity. Note that velocity and speed are not exactly the same thing. Velocity is a term used in physics to define both the speed and the direction of a moving object, so if two objects are moving at the same speed but in opposite directions, they have opposite momentum.

Momentum is the product of velocity and mass.Momentum is the product of velocity and mass.Momentum is the product of velocity and mass.Momentum is the product of velocity and mass.

Momentum is defined as inertia multiplied by velocity. And velocity has a direction. When a object interacts with other objects they collide and change directions.

Momentum is the product of mass times velocity. If two objects have different mass, we cannot compare their momentum unless we also know their velocity. However, if we are talking about two objects which are moving at the same velocity, then the object that has more mass will also have more momentum.

== == Momentum is the product of the mass of an object multiplied by its velocity (or speed). Momentum is conserved so if a moving object hits a staionary object the total momentum of the two objects after the collision is the same as the momentum of the original moving object.

All moving objects have Momentum.

Yes, that's how momentum is defined. Note that velocity is a vector; therefore, momentum is also a vector. That means that the direction of the movement matters.

Momentum is mass multiplied by velocity. (momentum = mass x velocity) So if a something that moves has mass, it has momentum.

The product of mass and velocity determines the momentum of a moving body.

Mass is the measure of how much matter an object is made from. Velocity is the speed of an object in a particular direction. Momentum is the the Mass of an object multiplied by its velocity. A stationary object with a mass of 1 and velocity of 0 has a momentum of 0 because 1 X 0 = 0. An object of mass 1 and velocity 2 has a momentum of 2 because 1 X 2 = 2. If the object of momentum 2 hits the object of momentum 0, the velocity of both objects is shared, which means the both objects have a velocity of 1. The mass of both objects is unchanged so the momentum of both objects equals 1 because 1 X 1 = 1. The combined momentum of the two objects is 2 because 1 + 1 = 2. The original momentum of both objects was 2 because 2 + 0 = 2. The momentum after the objects hit each other is 2, which means the momentum as not changed, this is what the the law of conservation of momentum means. The law is true for objects of different mass and if both are moving with different velocities and for more than two objects colliding.

skateboard. momentum is mass times velocity thus if 0 velocity=0 momentum

A moving body can be broken into the factors of mass and velocity. Momentum is the quantity that changes as velocity increases or decreases, assuming mass is held constant.

Momentum and is the product of mass and speed. So a fast-moving objects can have the same momentum as a slower-moving object with grater mass.
