Solution

The correct option is (B) 200 kg.m/s

Given,

Mass of the body = 20 kg

Velocity of the body = 10 m/s

We know,

The momentum of a body is given by the product of the mass of the body and velocity.

So,

MomentumP=Massm×Velocityv

Putting all the values

P=20×10=200 kg.m/s

Hence the momentum of the body is 200 kg.m/s
