# Linear momentum sentence example

linear momentum
• The effect of an external circulation of vortex motion on the motion of a cylinder has been investigated in § 29; a similar procedure will show the influence of circulation through a hole in a solid, taking as the simplest illustration a ring-shaped figure, with uniplanar motion, and denoting by the resultant axial linear momentum of the circulation.
• The velocity of propagation of a torsional disturbance along a wire of circular section may be found by the transfer of momentum method, remembering that we must now replace linear momentum by angular momentum.
• Thus taking nny point 0 as base, we have first a linear momentum whose components referred to rectangular axes through 0 are ~(m~), Z(m~), ~(mb); - (I)
• At the instant t+t5t the momenta of the system are equivalent to a linear momentum represented by a localized vector ~(m).(U+U) in a line through G tangential to the path of G, together with a certain angular momentum.
• The first of these may be called the Principle of Linear Momentum.
