Mass to Velocity Calculator

What is Mass to Velocity Calculator?

The Mass to Velocity Calculator is a versatile tool that explores the relationships between mass, velocity, momentum, and kinetic energy. By inputting values for mass and velocity, the calculator can provide you with the momentum and kinetic energy of the object.

Formula for Calculating Mass to Velocity:

Relationship Between Momentum and Kinetic Energy:


Momentum arises from the multiplication of an object’s mass by its velocity. It is a vector quantity, implying that it encompasses both magnitude and direction. Mathematically, momentum (p) can be expressed as:

p= m.v


  • p represents momentum
  • m is the mass of the object
  • v is the velocity of the object


For instance, consider a car with a mass of 2000 kg moving at a velocity of 30 m/s. The momentum of the car can be calculated using the formula p=m⋅v:

p = 2000 kg⋅30 m/s = 60000 kg m/s

Kinetic Energy:

K.E is a type of energy associated with motion. As a scalar magnitude, it exhibits proportionality to both the mass and the square of the velocity of the object. The formula to calculate kinetic energy (K.E) is:

KE= 1/2 m⋅v²


  • K.E represents kinetic energy
  • m is the mass of the object
  • v is the velocity of the object


Imagine a ball with a mass of 0.5 kg moving at a velocity of 10 m/s. The kinetic energy of the ball can be calculated using the formula 

KE= 1/2 m⋅v²

kE = 1/2 (0.5 kg). (10m/s)² = 25Joules

How to Use Mass to Velocity Calculator:

Input Parameters:

  • Mass: Enter the mass of the object in kilograms. This represents the amount of matter the object contains.
  • Velocity: Enter the velocity of the object in meters per second. This represents how fast the object is moving.

Perform Calculation:

After entering the mass and velocity, click the “Calculate” button. This will trigger the calculation of the object’s momentum and kinetic energy based on the provided inputs.

View Results:

  • Momentum: The calculator will display the calculated momentum of the object in units of kilogram meters per second (kg·m/s). 
  • Kinetic Energy: The calculator will also show the calculated kinetic energy of the object in joules (J).

At The End

The “Mass to Velocity Calculator” is like a helper for understanding how things move and why they have energy. It uses numbers we put in, like how heavy something is and how fast it’s going, to show us how much push it has (called momentum) and how much energy it gets from moving (called kinetic energy). So, when we want to know about moving things, this calculator helps us see clearly and learn more.
