Two balls are moving in the same direction. Ball A has half the mass of ball B, and is moving at twice its speed.

(a) Which ball has the greater momentum?

(b) Which ball has greater kinetic energy?

Thank you

**bobpursley**, Friday, May 3, 2013 at 8:03pmmomentum is mass*velocity

momentumA=M/2*2V=MV

momentumB=MV

they have the same momentum

KE=1/2 m v^2

KEA=1/2 m/2*(2v)^2=mv^2

KEB=1/2 m *v^2=1/2 mv^2
