**Answer #1:**

Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its movement

or motion. Momentum on the other hand, is the quantity of motion of an

object that is a product of its mass and velocity.

====================================

**Answer #2:**

Kinetic Energy = 1/2 M V2kg-m2/s2 (Newton-meter = Joule)

Momentum = M V kg-m/s (Newton-second)

* Numerical* Difference = (1/2 M V2) - (M
V) = (M V) x (1/2V -1) .

### What is the difference between momentum and kinetic energy and why is it that kinetic energy can be changed in to other forms of energy but momentum cant?

Firstly, momentum is not a form of energy; the question seems to
imply so.
Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by a moving object. That
energy is provided by a source, and can be removed from the object
because energy possessed by an object is not an inherent part of
that given object.
Momentum is a property of mass; momentum is inherent in the mass
of the object, and cannot be removed or put somewhere else, only
altered.

Any object contain kinetic energy. This energy increases by
momentum.
If you hold a bullet, then it has got kinetic energy.
When you drop it to the ground, this kinetic energy is
released.
By shooting the bullet out with a gun, the momentum increases
the bullets kinetic energy drastically.
It is in a way not the bullet that kills. it is the momentum of
it that makes it a killer.

### Can a single object have kinetic energy but no momentum?

No, an object cannot have kinetic energy and no momentum.
Here's the reason: Kinetic energy is the energy an object derives
from being in motion. If an object is moving, it has some non-zero
velocity. Momentum is the product of mass (which the object will
have) and velocity, which it must exhibit to have kinetic energy.
That is why an object cannot have kinetic energy with no
momentum.

### What is the mathematical relationship between momentum and kinetic energy of the body?

You can't calculate the kinetic energy if you only know the
momentum. Both kinetic energy and momentum depend on mass, but also
on the velocity - and the dependence is different. Kinetic energy
is proportional to the square of the speed, momentum is
proportional to velocity. You can solve the equations, to get
energy in terms of momentum AND mass:
(1) p = mv
v = p/m
(2) e = (1/2) mv2
Replacing (1) in (2):
e = (1/2) m (p/m)2
e = (1/2) p2/m

### If momentum is doubled then its kinetic energy is?

The relation between kinetic energy is proportional to the

If the momentum of an object is doubled, but its mass does not
increase (so velocity remains well below the speed of light), then
its velocity is doubled. If the velocity is doubled then the
kinetic energy increases by the square of 2, or four time.
