A simple numerical on momentum

Car mass is 1200 kg moving velocity is 108 km/hr. On applying brakes velocity reduced to 36 km/hr. Find change in momentum?

(posted by Aditi)

Answer:
m=1200 kg

u=108 x 5/18=30m/s

v=36×5/18=10m/s

Change in momentum = m(v-u) = 1200 x (30-10)=1200 x 20= 24000 kg m/s
