# The Penultimate Calculating Momentum Quiz

5 Questions | Total Attempts: 552  Settings  Momentum refers to the quantity of motion that an object has. Momentum depends upon the variables mass and velocity. In terms of an equation, the momentum of an object is equal to the mass of the object times the velocity of the object. Test out your ability of calculating momentum by taking the penultimate quiz below.
