Enter the total momentum and the mass into the calculator to determine the velocity.

Momentum to Velocity Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the velocity from momentum.

V = p / m
  • Where V is the velocity (m/s)
  • p is the momentum (kg*m/s)
  • m is the mass (kg)

To calculate velocity from momentum, simply divide the moment by the mass of the moving object.

How to Calculate Velocity From Momentum?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to convert Momentum to Velocity.

First, determine the momentum. In this example, the momentum is found to be 425 kg*m/s.

Next, determine the mass. For this problem, the mass is found to be 30 kg.

Finally, calculate the velocity from momentum using the formula above:

V = p / m

V = 425 / 30

V = 14.166 m/s
