Real life momentum * *

    Real life momentum *URGENT*

    I need a few major examples for how momentum is used in real life.
    Any good examples?

    could you clarify?
    do you want equations and stuff where momentum can be applied to everyday senarios?

    one idea that pops into my head is that linear momentum is conserved can be shown by walking forwards in a small boat and you notice that the boat travels backward relative to the water...not sure if this is what you're looking for?
