Momentum Change in Velocity

on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Momentum change in velocity, abbreviated as p, determines the change in momentum when the velocity changes but the mass remains constant. 

 

Momentum Change in Velocity formula

\(\large{ p = m \left( v_i - v_f \right) }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ p }\) = momentum \(\large{\frac{lbm-ft}{sec}}\)  \(\large{\frac{kg-m}{s}}\) 
\(\large{ m }\) = mass \(\large{lbm}\) \(\large{kg}\)
\(\large{ v_f }\) = final velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec} }\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s} }\)
\(\large{ v_i }\) = initial velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec} }\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s} }\)
