Explain in detail what specific factors affect the momentum of a bicycle going down hill.
Mass and velocity are the two terms which affect momentum of a bicycle going hill down.
As we know that Momentum describes the motion of an object. It is the combination of the objects mass and velocity.
So, obviously with no doubt mass and velocity are the two terms which affect momentum.
Momentum(p) = Mass(m) * Velocity(v)
The momentum also depends upon the mass and speed of the object.
More the mass of the object more is the momentum.
Depending upon the gravity and bicycle’s motion speed momentum varies.
Bicycle moves faster the down hill if it moves with some speed as it has lesser mass the momentum also will be less.
