Hi, I think my brain froze and i'm not seeing it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the problem is

the momentum is defined as

p=mv=m(dx/dt)

express the kinetic energy in terms of m and p

~ Now I know kinetic = T= (1/2)mv^2

and that P=mv

I figured that it must be t= (1/2)p^2

till i realized that I'm missing in terms of m. I just got stumped
