Enter the change in distance, the change in time, and the mass into the calculator to determine the Distance to Momentum. 

Distance to Momentum Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Distance to Momentum.

p = D / T * m
  • Where p is the Distance to Momentum (m/s*kg)
  • D is the change in distance (m)
  • T is the change in time (s)
  • m is the mass (kg)

To convert distance to momentum, divide the distance by the time, then multiply by the mass.

What are the units for Distance to Momentum?

The most common units for Distance to Momentum are m/s*kg.

How to Calculate Distance to Momentum?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Distance to Momentum.

First, determine the change in distance. In this example, the change in distance is determined to be 40 (m).

Next, determine the change in time. For this problem, the change in time is measured to be 3 (s).

Next, determine the mass. In this case, the mass is found to be 10 (kg).

Finally, calculate the Distance to Momentum using the formula above: 

p = D / T * m

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

p = 40 / 3 * 10 = 133.33 (m/s*kg)
