I am a little confused about how momentum works.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the mass were to increase, would the velocity also increase?

If the mass were to increase, would the momentum also increase?

If the mass was to decrease, would the velocity also decrease?

If the velocity was to increase, would the momentum also increase?

I was told that if mass were to decrease, then the velocity would actually increase. I'm not sure if this is true, so if someone could answer these questions, I'd appreciate it!
