Step 1

1 of 2

The momentum of the body\color{#c34632}\textbf{The momentum of the body} or the linear momentum is the product of the mass and the victor velocity of a body and it's vector quantity as it has direction as well as magnitude it's a result of the product of scalar which is mass (m)(m) and vector which is (v)(\vec{v})

p=mv\color{#4257b2}\vec{p} = m\vec{v}

The momentum has the same direction of the velocity vector causing it.
