Table[edit]

Factor (kg·m/s) Value (kg·m/s) Item
1024 2×1024 An electron in a hydrogen atom[1]
100 1 A 420 gram football (FIFA specified weight for outdoor size 5) kicked to a speed of 8.6 km/h.
2.6 9x19 mm 7.5 gram pistol round launched at 350 m/s
3.8 5.56 mm (0.223) 4 gram rifle round launched at 945 m/s
5.83 A fast baseball pitched in the major league.[2][3]
6 The total impulse of a class C model rocket engine, which can be found in amateur fireworks.
6.52 Planck momentum, the unit of momentum in the system of Planck units[note 1]
101 16 The momentum of the famous football kick of the Brazilian player Roberto Carlos in the match against France in 1997. The football had a speed of 137 km/h, making it one of the hardest kicks measured.
20 The total impulse of a class D model rocket engine, which also can be found in amateur fireworks.
43 12.7x99 mm (0.50 BMG) 50 gram rifle round launched at 860 m/s

43420 An SUV weighing 2.6 t (2.6 Mg) crashing at 60 km/h
108 1.1×108 A cruising Boeing 747, with passengers and baggage.[5][6]
4.95×108 Apollo 11 launched from earth to orbit
1010 1.63×1010 Space Shuttle launched from earth to orbit
1025 7.52×1025 Momentum of the Moon[7][8]
1029 1.78×1029 Momentum of the Earth[9][10]
