Meaning of Momentum

What is Momentum:

As momentum we call the impulse, force or violence of someone or something, the violent and accelerated movement of something, or the vehemence or ardor with which someone behaves in certain situations. The word, as such, comes from Latin impĕtus.

Thus, we can say, for example, that someone felt the impetus to do or say something: "I had the impetus to jump"; that we did or execute any action or movement with impetus: “The player hit the ball with impetus”; that something or someone has moved with impetus: "The dog ran with impetus to greet its owner", or that we behaved with impetus in some situation: "I had to act with impetus to achieve my goals".

Synonyms of momentum are impulse, force, violence, vehemence, verve, ardor, outburst or outburst.

In English, momentum can be translated as impetus (in physics), energy, vigor or force. For instance: "The force of the waves”(The momentum of the waves).

  • Euphoria.
  • Outrage.

Momentum in physics

In physics, it is known as momentum, or also as momentum, a vector quantity that is obtained from the product of multiplying the mass of a mobile by its speed at a given moment.

As such, momentum can describe the motion of a body in any mechanical theory. Its formula is p = m.v. To distinguish momentum from angular momentum, it is also called linear momentum.

On the other hand, it is said that the conservation of momentum is possible in isolated systems on which no external forces act, hence in such cases the total momentum of the system remains constant.
