# What is momentum of an object?

It's the mass of a object on its velocity (the velocity is a vector and as result of multiplication of a scalar (mass) on a vector (velocity) you get a vector (momentum). Intuitively, momentum is the property of a body which enables it to resist a force.

### Momentum is a property of an object and cannot be transferred from that object to another object?

Momentum of an object is its own property but it can be transferred by that object to any other object during their collision ( elastic or inelastic ) so as to conserve the total momentum of the system as demonstrated by the law of conservation of momentum. One of the examples of the transferring of momentum is the transfer of momentum and incident energy from photons of x rays to the loosely bound electrons in…
