Linear Momentum

The position vector of mass m at time t is r. Thus, the velocity which is tangential is.

The linear momentum is defined as mass times the velocity i.e.,

Equation (7.1) states that the resultant of all forces acting on mass m of a particle

equals its time rate of change of linear momentum.
