What is the meaning of: p=mu and p=mv
Are they equal?
Asked by madeehanore | 15th Oct, 2019, 02:18: PM
Momentum is a product of mass and velocity.
Here in the given equations,
p - momentum
m - mass
u - initial velocity of a body (in case of conservation of linear momentum - 'u' is velocity of a body before collision)
In equation p = mv,
v - final velocity of a body (in case of conservation of linear momentum - 'v' is velocity of a body after collision)
