What is momentum ? Write its S I and C G S unit of Momentum .

Definition of Momentum

“A product of mass and velocity of a moving body is called Momentum.
formula of Momentum

Momentum = mass × velocity

Mathematically,

P = m x v

Where ,

P = Momentum

m = mass

v = velocity

Momentum is a Vector quantity because it has magnitude as well as Direction.

S I unit of Momentum = kg m /s = kg m s-1

C G S unit of Momentum = g cm /s = g cm s-1
