my grand daughter is having a awful time with this and i can't help her but if you would explain it to me maybe i can help here goes a skier with a mass of 48kg moves with a velocity of 11.45 m/s east. what is the skier's momentum p=mxv.
Once again, you have answered your own question. The answer is p = m v
(The x is just a multiplication symbol)
p = momentum
multiply mass (m) by velocity (v) to get the momentum.
The answer will have dimensions of kilogram meters per second.
