Enter the mass of each object and the velocity of each object into the calculator to determine the Least Momentum. For each calculation, record the result, then compare the values at the end to determine which is the least.

Least Momentum Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Least Momentum.

p = m*V
  • Where p is the Least Momentum (m/s*kg)
  • m is the mass of each object (kg)
  • V is the velocity each object (m/s)

To calculate the least momentum multiply the mass of each object by the velocity of each object.

What are the units for Least Momentum?

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

How to Calculate Least Momentum?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the mass of each object. In this example, the mass of each object is determined to be 100 (kg).

Next, determine the velocity each object. For this problem, the velocity each object is measured to be 3 (m/s).

Finally, calculate the Least Momentum using the formula above: 

p = m*V

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

p = 100*3 = 300 (m/s*kg)
