Solution

## Step 1. Given data:mass $\left(m\right)$= $0.5kg$speed $\left(v\right)$= $10m}{s}$Step 2. Calculations:Momentum:It is a property of a moving body that the body acquires due to its mass and motion.It is equal to the product of the body's mass and speed. Mathematically: Momentum $\left(p\right)$=mass$\left(m\right)×$speed$\left(v\right)$ So Momentum = mass x speed $p=\left(0.5×10\right)=5kg.m}{s}$.Hence momentum of the body will be $5kg.m}{s}$
