Momentum is the physical and intrinsic quantity of a moving body. It is defined as the product of the mass and the velocity of the body. Momentum is a vector quantity involving a magnitude and a direction. It is mathematically written as:

$p = mv$

Where $p$ is the momentum, $m$ is the mass of the body, and $v$ is the velocity of the body. Let's use this equation for each case given.
