Expert Answer:

Let m1 and m2 are masses of the body . Let v1 and v2 are velocities of the body
 
if kinetic energies are equal,  (1/2) m1 v12 = (1/2) m2 v22 ....................(1)
 
if m1 / m2 = 10  then   v2 / v1 = 101/2 = 3.162
 
Hence ratio of momentum ( p1 / p2 ) = (m1 v1) / (m2 v2 ) = 10/3.162  = 3.162
