Although it can't sustain its top speed for more than 8.65 sec, the cheetah can run a distance of 274 m during that time. If a cheetah with a mass of 50.0 kg is moving north at its top speed. what is its momentum?

Multiply its mass (M = 50 kg) by its top speed, V = 274/8.65 = 31.6 m/s. The product of those two numbers, M V, is the momentum.
