# Magnitude of momentum between each pair of adjacent locations

## Homework Statement

You will calculate the change in the magnitude of momentum between each pair of adjacent locations. Begin by calculating ∆ |~pBC|,the change between locations B and C

~pB = 2.03, 2.83, 0 kg · m/s
~pC =1.55, 0.97, 0 kg · m/s
~pD = 2.24, −0.57, 0 kg · m/s
~pE = 7.97, −1.93, 0 kg · m/s

## Homework Equations

magnitude = sqaretoot(x^2 + y^2+z^2)

## The Attempt at a Solution

The momentum is given above, so I am confused If i need to see them as vectors, calculate magnitude of the B and C and just subtract?
