Write your comment here...yeah,we all know the formula of momentum i.e-momentum =mass × velocity
but first we know that the highest point i.e-u cos theta

Given: Mass of body = 2 kg, velocity = 15 m/s, θ = 70°

Formula: 1) At highest point velocity = u cos θ

2) Momentum = mass x velocity

Solution:

1) At highest point velocity = 15 x cos 70

= 5.13 m/s

2) Momentum = mass x velocity

= 2 x 5.13

= 10.26 kg ms-1

The momentum of a body at its highest point is 10.26 kg ms-1
