A baseball and a golf ball have same momentum. Which has the greater kinetic energy [Solved]

The golf ball does.
It has to be moving faster to create the same momentum of a heavier baseball.

In terms of momentum p = mv this is equal to (1/2)(mv)*v = (1/2)*p*v

The baseball has more kinetic energy because it has more mass (its heavier). So it takes more energy to get it up to the same speed, and once its moving it takes more energy to stop it.

baseball due to its greater mass

So if you have two objects with the same momentum, the one with the higher velocity has more KE.

baseball due to its greater mass

The baseball has more kinetic energy because it has more mass (its heavier). So it takes more energy to get it up to the same speed, and once its moving it takes more energy to stop it.

The golf ball. I cant explain it better than those who previously explained it. Im just adding my voice to the correct answer if you will judge us like its a vote.

Answer 6

the one with the most mass has the most kinetic energy..
in this case the baseball would have the greater kinetic energy

So if you have two objects with the same momentum, the one with the higher velocity has more KE.

the one with the most mass has the most kinetic energy..
in this case the baseball would have the greater kinetic energy

m1v1 = m2v2 but m1 > m2 hence v1 < v2 hence m1v1*v1/2 < m2v2*v2/2
