Examples

Fact is that the force of gravity is 9.8 kgm/s2, c = 300,000 km/sec, DNA is a double helix, etc.

Thus, for example, work would be indicated by the letter W (initial of the word); the C.G.S. unit is the _erg_, which would be written without abbreviation, on account of its being short; and the practical units would be the kilogrammeter (_kgm_), the grammeter (_gm_), etc. The multiples would be the _megerg_, the tonnemeter (_tm_), etc.Mr. Jamieson's propositions have been in great part approved.

Tata Ace which offers just 16 bhp and 3.8 kgm of torque.

Answer: We must always choose a direction for which we will define as positive, in this case we will choose North as being the positive direction So p m v p 1200 2 p 2400 kgm/s North You must always give a direction when working out the momentum, since it is a vector!

Otherwise they were both completely regular production cars powered by a 540 hp 65° V12 engine that delivers maximum torque of 60 kgm at 5,250 rpm.

It's momentum is not much .... around .9 kgm/s, not enough to knock you over

In other words … Force = Change in momentum (in kgm / s) mv (in N) Time (in s) F T For example, David Beckham takes a free kick by kicking a stationary football with a force of 40N.
