Momentum quiz

Take the momentum quiz below to see how well you understand momentum. After completing this quiz with 100% accuracy, you will know exactly what the momentum is. You will not need to use a paper and pencil to complete this quiz.

First, read the lesson about momentum and then take this quiz.

Objective of the momentum quiz:

  • Know what the unit of momentum is
  • Know how to use the formula to find the momentum
  • Identify real life situations of momentum
Test your knowledge with the quiz below:

1. The momentum depends on the

weight and acceleration
mass and acceleration
weight and speed
mass and velocity.

2. The formula to get the momentum is

momentum = w*v
momentum = m*v
momentum = m*a
momentum = w*a.

3. Which vehicle has greater momentum? A truck at rest or a man walking 3 miles per hour

The man
The truck
Neither has greater momentum
The question does not make sense

4. If an object has no momentum, the possible cause could be because

the mass is zero
the object is moving but not accelerating.
the velocity is zero
None of the above

5. The unit of momentum is


6. The momentum of a 1000 grams object moving with a speed of 20 meters per second is

2000 kg.m/s
20000 g.m/s
20 kg.m/s
200 g.m/s

7. Which vehicle has a smaller momentum? A 2000 pounds car moving at 30 m/s or a 4000 pounds light truck moving at 15 m/s?

The truck has a smaller momentum
They have the same momentum
The car has a smaller momentum
The momentum cannot be computed with the information that is given

8. Which statement is true?

Once an object is in motion, the momentum is constant
Atoms are too tiny to have momentum
When a vehicle is not accelerating, the momentum will decrease.
The mass is constant

9. Two 747 airplanes cruise with the same speed of 500 miles per hour. Do they airplane have the same momentum?

They do since they have the same mass and speed
Airplanes can never ever have the same momentum
Nonsense question
Not enough information

10. Which sport momentum is really important?

Ping Pong
