  1. (J) momentum=mass* change in velocity

    J=3kg*(10m/s-0m/s) since the object started at rest, the initial velocity =0m/s.

    J=30 J

  2. Not quite.

    momentum=mass*velocity=30 Nt-m/s or J/s

  3. Gave the wrong units, which is J/s; I apologize, I was moving too fast, but the set up is correct.
