Linear Momentum

Increasing the speed of an object increases its momentum, and a heavy object will have more momentum than a lighter one moving at the same speed.

1 lb ft s^{1}  =  0.138255 kg m s^{1} 
For an object moving at close to the speed of light this definition gets modified.
The total momentum is a conserved quantity in any process.
