    - Linear momentum is defined as the total quantity of motion possessed by a particle.

    - Linear momentum = mass x velocity

    - It is a vector quantity which possess both magnitude and direction.

    - Momentum of heavy vehicles such as trucks is more than light vehicles such as bikes. Momentum basically means mass in motion.

    - Mass is measured in kg and velocity is measured in meter / sec.

    Therefore, S.I. unit of linear momentum is kg.m / sec.
