Momentum Vector#

A momentum vector expressed in component form is exactly \(p_x =\) 15 \(\rm{kg \; m/s}\) and \(p_y =\) -8 \(\rm{kg \; m/s}\).

Part 1#

The magnitude, \(p\), and angle, \(\theta\), measured counterclockwise with respect to the positive \(x\)-axis of this vector are:

Answer Section#

  • \(p= 17\; \rm{kg \; m/s}\), \(\theta = 28.07^\circ\).

  • \(p= -17\; \rm{kg \; m/s}\), \(\theta = 331.93^\circ\).

  • \(p= 17\; \rm{kg \; m/s}\), \(\theta = 151.93^\circ\).

  • \(p= -17\; \rm{kg \; m/s}\), \(\theta = 151.93^\circ\).

  • \(p= 17\; \rm{kg \; m/s}\), \(\theta = 331.93^\circ\).
