Classically momentum is the product of the mass and velocity of an object. In relativistic mechanics, in order to be conserved, the momentum of an object must be defined as p=Î³m0v where m0 is the invariant mass of the object and Î³ is the Lorentz factor, given by Î³=1/(Sqrt(1-(v/c)2) where v is the speed of the object and c is the speed of light.

Force is the rate of change of momentum...

That means....

### What is meant by momentum?

A body's resistance to change position or course.

### How can momentum be increase of the body?

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

### 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.

### Which determines the momentum a moving body?

The product of mass and velocity determines the momentum of a moving body.

### How can you relate a force with the change of a momentum of a body?

Change of the body's momentum = (force on the body) x (length of time the force acts on it)

### How can you related of force with the change of momentum of a body?

### What is meant when someone says that an athletic team has a lot of momentum or less its momentum?

More momentum would mean that the team has recently won several games or matches, and opposite for less momentum.

### What is Impulse momentum?

Impulse momentum theory: when force is applied to a rigid body it changes the momentum of the body. it is calculated with respect to time and also the velocity is calculated.

### What does momentum mean in science?

Momentum of a body is got by the product of its mass and velocity. If the concerned body is at rest then momentum is ZERO. If m is the mass and v is the velocity then mv is the momentum. Momentum is a vector quantity. Its unit is kg m/s

### What is the state of a body having zero momentum?

Zero momentum means that the state of a body is also zero, and is static.

### What is impulse momentum theory?

Impulse momentum theory: when force is applied to a rigid body it changes the momentum of the body. it is calculated with respect to time and also the velocity is calculated.
