No, a larger mass will not increase velocity, assuming the same amount of force is applied to a smaller object. If the larger object is accelerated to the same speed as the smaller object, the larger object will have a larger momentum. However, if a faster moving large object were to bang from behind another object, the object banged will end up with a higher speed.

What is an example of an object with a small mass that has a large momentum?

A bullet. It has small mass but a very large velocity, hence a large momentum (=product of mass and velocity).


Why does an increase in velocity have a greater influence than an equal increase in mass?

in the formula for kinetic energy velocity is squared and the multiplied by the mass and divided in half KE = 1/2(mass * velocity squared)


How do you increase or decrease an objects momentum?

In order to increase an objects momentum, you must increase the objects velocity or mass. To decrease momentum, you reduce the objects velocity or mass.


What effect does mass of the object have on its momentum?

The momentum of a body is defined as:momentum= Mass * velocitySo for any body and a given velocity, the momentum is directly and linearly proportional to its mass, that is if you increase the mass of a body then its momentum will increase by an amount of:(M2-M1)* velocityWhere:M2: Mass after increaseM1: Initial Mass


Do changes in velocity and mass have the same effect on kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy is equal to one half the mass times the square of the velocity. Thus, changes in velocity and mass do not have the same effect on kinetic energy. If you increase the mass by a factor of 10 at the same velocity, you increase the kinetic energy by a factor of 10. However, if you increase the velocity by a factor of 10 at the same mass, you increase the kinetic energy by a factor of 100.


A moving object can have a large momentum if it has what?

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.


How can you increase the momentum of an object?

In order to increase the momentum of an object, you must increase the mass or velocity


What are two ways to increase momentum?

The momentum (P) of a body is the product of a its mass (m) and its velocity (v).P = mvSo, in order to increase the momentum of the body, you can eitherincrease its massincrease its velocity


How does velocity affect momentum?

if velocity increases, so does momentum. and vice versa momentum = mass x velocity increasing mass or velocity or both will increase momentum


How does velocity effect momentum?

if velocity increases, so does momentum. and vice versa momentum = mass x velocity increasing mass or velocity or both will increase momentum


Does mass increase with velocity?

Yes, because of relativity. The mass of an object will change as the objects velocity approaches the speed of light.


What is needed for an object to have a large momentom?

A large mass or a large velocity or both.===============================Answer #2:A large product of (mass) x (speed).



The momentum of an object depends on?

Its mass and its velocity.Its mass and its velocity.Its mass and its velocity.Its mass and its velocity.



How could you increase momentum?

Either by increasing the mass of the body or its velocity.


If the velocity of an object doubles and its mass triples how much does the momentum increase?

Momentum is mass times velocity. The answer, from that fact, should be trivially easy to determine.


How could you increase the kinetic energy of a truck without increasing the velocity?

If you Increase truck mass, kinetic energy will increase. Because K.E. is directionally proportional to the mass


How do you increase the kinetic energy of a skateboard?

Since kinetic energy depends on mass and speed, you can increase either of these.


How can the momentum of a body be increase?

momentum of a body can be increased either by increasing velocity or by mass.since momentum = mass * velocity.


How can a slowly docking boat and a speeding rifle bullet both have a large amount of momentum?

Momentum = mass * Velocity. Boat has large mass but low velocityBullet has small mass but high velocity.Momentum is a function of speed and mass. A slowly docking boat has a low speed, but the boat will have huge mass, therefore the momentum will be a large amount. The bullet has very low mass, but huge speed, and so, again, the momentum will be large.


What is the relationship between velocity and molar mass in gases?

Object that are large move slowly, so as molar mass increases, velocity decreases.


How can impulse be increase?

Impulse is denoted as a change in momentum. Momentum has the units of kilogram meter per second. Which is mass times velocity. So you can decrease the time and increase the velocity to increase the impulse.


Does kinetic energy increase with speed and time?

Time is not a factor, speed is velocity and velocity equates to kinetic energy. E=Mass * Velocity squared.


How do you increase the kinetic energy of an object?

Assuming you are not able to increase its mass, the only other way is to increase the speed component of its velocity.
