Example1 - Linear momentum

Example
A bike with a student on it is initially going 10 m/s to the right. The mass of the student and bike combined is 75 kg. What is the momentum of the student + bike?

Solution:
This is simply a question that gets us to apply the momentum formula. We know m and v, so calculation is trivial:

p = mv

p= (75 kg)(10 ms-1 right)

p= 750 kg ms-1 towards the right.
