Kinematic momentum?

Hey I just wanted to check with y'all, but I feel I'm fairly well acquainted with momentum and the rules surrounding it, but in brushing up I began reading the wiki article on it. In the generalized momentum section I came across the term kinematic momentum described as mass times volume. Although I am not familiar with that term nor terribly fluent in analytic mechanics, I found that description odd of mass times volume. Can anyone confirm for me whether this is a typo or not?

You should give the links:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Momentum#Generalized_momentum
the product of mass and volume is also referred to as mechanical, kinetic or kinematic momentum

Looks like a typo to me. See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinetic_momentum
the kinetic momentum is the momentum
