Earth (m= 5.98 x 10 to the 24 power kg) moving with an orbital speed equal to 29700 m/s. Answer in units of kg x m/s.Calculate the magnitude of the linear momentum for each of the following cases...
Linear momentum of the earth = earths mass in Kg* earths lenear velocity in m/s at the momemt
=1.77606*10^29 kg m/s
Mass = m = 5.98*(10^24) kg, and
Speed = v = 29700 m/s
Momentum = m*v = [5.98*(10^24)]*29700 = 1.77606*(10^29) kg x m/s
Answer: Magnitude of linear momentum of earth is 1.77606*(10^29) kg x m/s
