    Volumes have been written on this subject -- google for it, and focus on the papers from peer reviewed journals -- there's quite a bit of crack all over on this topic. You might want to learn classical mechanics a little further -- Goldstein, Classical Mechanics is the classic (no pun intended) reference. Understanding the role of time in classical mechanics is a prerequisite before you move on to the much trickier situation in QM. Suffice to say that momentum and velocity have almost exactly nothing to do with each other.
