# Momentum unit - What is the unit for momentum in physics?

"Buridian, John".

Forces such as Newtonian gravity, which depend only on the scalar distance between objects, satisfy this criterion.

Description: Generalized See also: Newton's laws can be difficult to apply to many kinds of motion because the motion is limited by constraints.

The standard unit of momentum is kg*m/s. There are some other units of momentum viz: kg*mi/hr, kg*km/hr, and g*cm/s. In each of these units, the unit of mass of the object is multiplied by the unit of the velocity of the object. Impulse

Unit of Momentum There is no particular name for the unit of Momentum as it is a product of velocity & mass whose units are expressed in quantities. So, the mass is measured in kg and velocity is measured in ms -1. So the derived SI Unit for momentum is kg ms -1. Derivation: momentum of a certain object is represented by the symbol ‘p ’.
