No, since momentum equals mass times velocity, if the masses of the two objects of equal velocity are different then their momentum will be different.

Do two objects that have the same mass always have the same momentum?

Momentum depends upon mass and velocity both . Therefore, it doesn't mean that two objects of same mass will have same momentum always. Momentum=Mass of the object * Velocity of object


If two objects have the same velocity do they have the same momentum?

No, because momentum depends on velocity and mass so they may have the same velocity but if they have different masses then they will have different momenta. (momenta is the plural form of momentum.)


How is it possible for two objects to have the same momentum but different velocities.?

momentum is mass x velocity, so if they have the same momentum but velocity is different then mass is also different


Can objects with two different masses have the same momentum?

Yes. Since momentum is mass times velocity (m·v), you can get the same momentum by adjusting the velocity. If one object has twice the mass of another, it can still have the same momentum if the less massive object has twice the velocity of the more massive object.


Momentum has the same direction as?

Momentum is the product of velocity and mass; and since velocity is the only vector in this product, momentum has the same direction as the velocity.


What is the direction of momentum?

It is the same direction as the objects Velocity 8)


If two objects have the same momentum do their velocities necessarily have the same directions?

=== === Since momentum is a vector and not a scalar quantity, to have the same momentum, they must have the same direction. Remember, vectors have magnitude and direction. Speed is the magnitude part of velocity. Since momentum is the product of mass (a scalar) and velocity (a vector) if two objects are moving in different directions, even if they have the same mass and speed, their momentums are different.


The momentum of an object is in the same what as its velocity?

In the same direction. Both momentum and velocity are vectors.


How can it be possible for two objects with different velocities to have the same momentum?

Because momentum is equal to mass times velocity, so if they have different velocity the momentum will be equal if the masses are right. Momentum is also equal to force times time.


Does an object with less mass have more momentum than an object with more mass?

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.



How does 2 objects with different masses have the same momentum?

Momentum is mass times velocity so if the object with the smaller mass has a larger velocity then the second object they can have equal momentums. Good Answer!



If two objects have the same momentum do their magnitudes necessarily have the same directions?

First of all ... I think you're talking about either the magnitude of the momentum, or the magnitudeof the velocity, not the magnitude of the objects.Now ... you're obviously skating around the subject of vectors here, recognizing that both thevelocity and the momentum are vector quantities.If, as you say, the two objects have " ... the same momentum ... ", then you're saying that theirmomentum vectors are equal. If so, then you'd have to say that yes, since the momentum vectorsare equal, the momentum vectors and the velocity vectors must all have the same direction.But if the two momenta only have equal magnitudes, then they ... and the velocities ... can be inany two directions, not necessarily related.


What will be the momentum of an object moving with a certain speed?

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.


Is momentum inversely proportional to velocity?

No, momentum is directly proportional to velocity, and in the same direction..


Do Two objects of different masses freely fall with same momentum?

No.....because we need both mass and velocity to find the momentum if velocity is same that is 9.8m/s that is of free falling bodies.........mass will effect the final result.


Momentum has the same direction as what?

The momentum vector has the same direction as the velocity vector.


What is the momentum of a bowling ball that has the same velocity as a bowling ball with a mass of 8 kg?

The momentum depends both on the velocity, and on the mass.The momentum depends both on the velocity, and on the mass.The momentum depends both on the velocity, and on the mass.The momentum depends both on the velocity, and on the mass.


Why do momentum have direction?

Momentum is given by the product of the mass and velocity. As velocity is a vector which has direction, the direction of the object's momentum concerned is the same as the direction of its velocity. Thus momentum also has direction.


Can objects with different masses have the same momentum?

Objects with different masses can have the same momentum, m1v1 = m2v2.


The momentum of two objects before collision is the same as the momentum of the two objects after collision?

Yes. The total momentum would be the same. This is an example of the conservation of linear momentum.


Why do you need momentum?

Momentum is defined as the "Mass in Motion". It is a Vector quantity. It depends on two variables (Object Mass and Velocity) . Its direction is same as objects velocity direction. In physics momentum is required to specify the motion of the object . If two bodies of same masses having different velocities have different momentum , in a similar way bodies of different masses having same velocity have different momentum. So , in order to describe the motion of object clearly one of the tool in classical mechanics is momentum


Does momentum have a direction?

Yes. An object's momentum is in the same direction as its velocity.


When can a car and truck have the same momentum?

Momentum is the product of mass x velocity, so if this product is the same for both, they will have the same momentum.
