# Momentum

From classical mechanics to quantum field theory, momentum is the Universe's preferred language to describe motion. Learn here about momentum, its conservation, and how it captures our intuitions.

A crate of mass \(2\text{ kg}\) lies at rest on a floor. The coefficient of static friction between the crate and floor is \(\mu_s=0.3,\) and that of kinetic friction between the crate and floor is \(\mu_k=0.1.\) If a horizontal force \(F\) is applied on the crate, and the magnitude of the force changes with respect to time \(t\) according to the equation \(F=3t\) in unit of N, what is the speed of the crate after four seconds?

Assume that gravitational acceleration is \(g=10\text{ m/s}^2.\)

A crate of mass \(2.6\text{ kg}\) is initially at rest on a frictionless inclined plane that makes a \(30^\circ\) angle with the horizontal. A force \(F\) whose magnitude is \(F=(18-t)\text{ N}\) with respect to time \(t\) is exerted on the crate for five seconds in the direction up the plane. Find the approximate resulting velocity of the crate.

Assume that gravitational acceleration is \(g=10\text{ m/s}^2.\)
