You must not have looked very many places.

Momentum is defined as

p = mv

where p is momentum, m is mass, and v is velocity.

How can we find the momentum of the 145g object? How could we find the momentum of the 275 m/s object? These two momentums are equal, so what do we do with things that are equal?
