a foam boulder has a mass of 2kg and a velocity of 20m/s. a stone boulder has the same velocity (20m/s) but a mass of 20kg. which of the two has more momentum? Explain.

• Physics -

The definition of momentum, which you apparently need to review, will tell you the answer. Please do not waste your time and ours passing on such trivial questions to others.

• Physics -

Since momentum = M*V and they both have the same velocity (V), the more massive stone boulder has more momentum.
