Question: What is magnitude in terms of momentum?
My physics book states momentum has both magnitude and direction? thanks in advance
momentum is the amount of motion possessed by a body!!!
it is calculated as m*v
where v is the velocity
magnitude of momentum would be how much motion is possessed by the body n the direction is in which direction does the body have the motion!!!
momentum is diff from force which is the rate of change of momentum!!
Velocity has magnitude and direction.
Momentum is just a force.
