__Given__ :

Mass of car = 850kg

Velocity of the car = 23m/s

__To find__ :

The momentum of the car

__Solution__ :

The product of mass and velocity is called **momentum****.**

- Momentum is a vector quantity having both magnitude and direction.
- The SI unit of momentum is kilogram metre per second.

We know momentum is product of mass and velocity that is

**p****= mv**

where,

p denotes momentum

m denotes mass

v denotes velocity

by substituting all the given values in the formula,

➠ p = mv

➠ p = (860)(23)

➠ p = 19780 kg.m/s

**thus, the momentum of the car is 19780 kg.m/s**
