Momentum of a bullet of mass 1.34 x 10-3 slug traveling 735 ft/ s

  • physics -

    Momentum= mass*velocity These units should not be taught any more, they are obsolete, and distract from teaching concepts that should be understood, In my opinion. The important units are SI, which few US students are adept at using.
