# whats a difference between change of momentum and rate of change of momentum

### Asked by disha2.bhardwaj | 29th Jun, 2015, 01:30: PM

Expert Answer:

### Change in momentum of a body is defined as the change in the product of mass and velocity of the body.
It is given as:
Change in momemtum, Δp=Δ(mv)
The change in the product can be due to either the change in mass or due to change in velocity or both.
The rate in change of momentum of a body is equal to the product of mass of an object and acceleartion produced in it due to the force acting on the body provided that the mass of the object remains constant.
It is given as:
Rate of change of momentum = mass × acceleration
Or,

- a body of mass 5kg starts and roll down 32m of aninclined plane in 4sec,find the force acting on the body
- Why we don't hurt when we jump on muddy floor compared to hard floor
- A 4 kg block on an inclined plane is acted upon by a horizontal force of 40N as shown in the figure (please refer the image attached). The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the plane is 0.3. What is the acceleration of the block if it is moving up the plane?(sin37° = 0.6) A) 1.6 m/s^2 up along the plane B) 1.6 m/s^2 down the plane C) 2 m/s^2 up along the plane D) 2 m/s^2 down the plane
