**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}**
