Give the derived unit of Linear momentum (P).

Best Answer

Fundamental quantities are the basic or base quantities. These are independent of each other. They consist of the quantities which are essential to form all other physical quantities apart from fundamental quantities. The quantities which are formed with the help of fundamental quantities is called Derived quantities.

Momentum is the product of mass and velocity and is represented by p

P=mv

It's S.I. unit will be a product of S.I. unit of mass and velocity i.e.

kgms−1
