Sentence examples for momentum from high-quality English sources.

  • See also conservation law; angular momentum.

  • Orzel: The more angular momentum something has, the harder it is to change the orientation of that object.

  • The looks are immediately identifiable as Sennheiser Momentum – the exposed steel of the lower band is unmistakable – but this time out there seems to be more Momentum than before.

  • Our problem about conservation of momentum is also solved: piece of the bar that does not time travel has lower momentum to the right at the end than it had initially, but the piece that does time travel has a higher momentum (due to the Coulomb forces), and everything balances out.

Use momentum in a sentence.

  • These three quantities are energy, (linear) momentum, and angular momentum.

  • Energy, momentum, and angular momentum, however, still firmly hold centre stage.

momentum sentence examples

  • During launch, the downward momentum of the expanding exhaust gases just equals in magnitude the upward momentum of the rising rocket, so that the total momentum of the system remains constant—in this case, at zero value.

  • The force applied by the external agent changes the momentum of the particle, but at the same time the momentum of the external agent must also change in such a way that the total momentum of both together is constant, or conserved.

  • Conservation of momentum, general law of physics according to which the quantity called momentum that characterizes motion never changes in an isolated collection of objects; that is, the total momentum of a system remains constant.

  • What’s important to know about the Momentum Free (£84) is that the earbuds are connected by a slim, adjustable cable - physically, that’s how they can be distinguished from the Momentum In-Ear Wireless and Momentum True Wireless in this list.
