Velocity is distance/time. So, 2000/400 reduces to 5 m/s, but since velocity is a vector, direction MUST be stated along with the speed we just calculated. The final answer is 5 m/s South (or 270 degrees).

What is the velocity of a 2000 kg car possessing 300 kg ms of monmentuem?

Just use the definition of momentum, as mass x velocity. In this case, you need to divide the momentum by the mass, to get the velocity.

A 4000 Kg truck travels in a straight line at 10 meter per second then what is its momentum?

(Momentum) = (mass) x (velocity) If you know the momentum and the mass, you can find the velocity. Do you know how to do algebra? (velocity) = (Momentum) / (mass) = (30,000 kg m/s) / (400 kg) = 75 m/s

A car has a kinetic energy of 2000 joules If the speed doubles its kinetic energy will?

It will be 8000 joules. ( if the velocity of a car has been doubled, the KE will be quadrupled. Because the KE is directly proportional to the velocity squared.)KE= 1/2 m v2

Explain whether a car can move with changing velocity while maintaining constant speed?

Velocity is a quantity that has magnitude and direction. The magnitude of velocity is what we call "speed".If the velocity is constant, then its magnitude and direction are both constant.Constant magnitude means constant speed.So the answer to the question is "Yes".

What is terminal velocity and how to control it and why it occurs?

Terminal velocity is when air resistance balances out with gravity. For humans it's usually around 2000 ft of falling, gravity accelerates the person towards the ground at about 9.8m/s, as said person speeds up, air resistance increases and it becomes harder to accelerate. Terminal velocity is the point at which one may no longer accelerate. To control it: more air resistance = slower descent (terminal velocity comes sooner and is not as fast (i.e.parachutes), less air resistance = faster descent, it may take longer to reach terminal velocity as it is a much higher speed.
