When a constant force acts on an object, the change in momentum of that object depends solely on its mass. This is because when a constant force is applied to an object, it will always result in the same amount of work being done and hence the same change in kinetic energy of that object.

The kinetic energy formula for objects with mass “m” is: KE = ½ mv^2. So if you apply the same force to two different objects with different masses, they will have different changes in their respective momentums (or speeds).

Object with mass “m” = KE^=½ mv^.

If you apply the same force to two different objects with different masses, they will have different changes in their respective momentums (or speeds).

For example: if we applied a 200N constant force on an object that has a mass of 100kg and another object that has a mass of 100g, then even though both objects were given the same push by the person applying them, there would be significant differences in how far each one moves as evidenced below. The first graph illustrates what would happen when both objects are pushed at the same time using 200 N strength; after being propelled backwards for some distance—with equal velocity–the more massive object would stop and the less massive object would continue on as if there were still an applied force.

A graph of this is shown below:

The second graph illustrates what would happen when each one is given a push at different times–again, with 200N strength. After being propelled backwards for some distance and then stopping (at which point they are both moving with equal velocity), it can be seen that after receiving successive pushes, the more massive object will reach its maximum momentum first because it moves farther before coming to rest than does the less-massive object; in other words, it has greater inertia.

A graph of this is also shown below:

What conclusion can we draw from these two graphs? Momentum depends upon mass! The heavier your object, the greater momentum it will have.

This is illustrated in both graphs: The second graph illustrates what would happen when each one is given a push at different times–again, with 200N strength. After being propelled backwards for some distance and then stopping (at which point they are both moving with equal velocity), it can be seen that after receiving successive pushes, the more massive object will reach its maximum momentum first because it moves farther before coming to rest than does the less-massive object; in other words, it has greater inertia.

A graph of this is also shown below: What conclusion can we draw from these two graphs? Momentum depends upon mass! The heavier your object, the greater momentum it will have. This is because the force pushing it back also has to overcome its inertia and keep moving.

The Change in Momentum of an Object: Dependent on a Constant Force

A constant force acts on an object, what does the objects change in momentum depend upon?

Illustrated are both graphs from this article that show how when each one is given consecutive pushes with 200N strength (the second graph illustrates what would happen if they were pushed at different times), after being propelled backwards for some distance and then stopping – they will be moving with equal velocity. The more massive object will reach its maximum momentum first as seen by not only the heavier mass but greater inertia- meaning it moves farther before coming to rest than does the less-massive object.

However, the object which starts with larger momentum will slow down at a faster rate than its less-massive counterpart. This is due to kinetic energy being proportional to mass and inversely proportional to velocity squared – meaning that if an object has more speed it can lose this rapidly by decreasing its momentum because of all four forces acting on them: gravity, friction, air resistance or drag (which are slowing the objects), as well as their own inertia back towards equilibrium.

In general for both graphs above, after receiving two pushes from 200N strength each and stopping without applying any force thereafter, they would move forward again but not get very far before coming to rest. The same thing applies when looking at how much time it takes before coming to rest.

The rate of change in momentum is different depending on the constant force acting on an object, for example gravity or friction. If a person were to push hard against something like a wall and then let go before it has time to stop moving, their more-massive counterparts will have increased velocity than its less-massive counterpart because all four forces are still applied but with greater strength due to their heavier weight. This means that if they happen to be near another object such as the ground and slam into it at great speed, this other object would get knocked away from them while being pushed forward by the higher kinetic energy resulting from mass x v²/m – meaning that if there was any air resistance slowing down these objects upon collision with the ground, the heavier object would have a greater stopping distance.

The Change in Momentum of an Object: Dependent on a Constant Force If a person were to push hard against something like a wall and then let go before it has time to stop moving, their more-massive counterparts will have increased velocity than its less-massive counterpart because all four forces are still applied but with greater strength due to their heavier weight. This means that if they happen to be near another object such as a table, they would have a greater momentum in order to collide with the object. This is an example of Newton’s second law that states “the net force on an object equals mass times acceleration.” The change in momentum for these two objects depends on their respective masses which can be determined by dividing one weight (in kilograms) by the other number multiplied by 100 so someone who weighs 110 pounds and another person weighing 200 pounds will both have a different velocity when impacting something at the same time because there are more total kilgrams applied to them but not equal forces due to having different weights.

My name is __ . I am very excited about this post! It has been really hard trying to organize my thoughts while still making sure my post is understandable. I hope this post helps people understand Newton’s second law a little better!

Thank You for reading and understanding the change in momentum of an object dependent on a constant force. Hello everyone! My name is __ . I had such a hard time figuring out where to start with this post because it was really complicated but I feel like after laying everything down and organizing my thoughts while still making sure people understand what’s going on, it should be easier now. So here goes nothing.. When talking about Newton’s second law, one thing we need to keep in mind is how different objects will interact when they collide
