Hey, does anyone know how to find the momentum when you only have mass and height???

How does potential energy relate to kinetic energy?

I think it's a trick. Is momentum proportional to energy?

I have a problem on a pysics assignment to find momentum and all I'm given is the mass and a height. Once I come up with a formula for that I should be able to find the rest. Any ideas???

#### abode_x

p=mv.. so if its not moving then momentum is zero. there has to be some context like maybe the final momentum when a mass is dropped from a height? or something...

ok this post wasnt really detailed but thx...ive put up a new one though..."Finding momentum with height and mass" that has the problem and all
