Momentum Exists » Posters Pending 0001 – 6 posters » Posters Pending: P = m.v

Posters Pending: P = m.v


p = m.v  ( pending)

p = m.v ( pending)


Poster: p = m.v

This poster displays the simple and catchy equation for momentum, being….. p = m.v and stamped onto the poster is the tag line question “Get it?”
This poster is designed to stimulate thought and discussion between people who may already know that p stands for momentum and the m and the v stands for mass and velocity….. and those who do not know….. yet.


This posters relation to momentum is:
* That….. Momentum (‘p’) is affected by mass (‘m’)….. which all objects on, in and including the vehicle itself….. have a measure of mass.
* That….. Momentum (‘p’) is affected by velocity (‘v’)….. which all moving objects (in this case relating to moving vehicles)….. have a measure of velocity.


Help Files:
Momentum Explained, in 3 easy parts:
For an explanation of momentum, relating to road safety….. momentum has been honed, simply, into 3 easy parts….. found in the category: Momentum Explained

ME01. Momentum is a quantity….. you have ‘none’ or you have ‘some’.
ME02. Momentum is obtained & lost….. you ‘dial it up’ and you ‘dial it down’.
ME03. Momentum is variable….. you change the mass and/or you change the velocity.

For this poster – p = m.v:
ME01 , ME02  & ME03 are relevant


These posters are pending, so it’s….. Your turn:
Honed, useful feedback and comments are welcomed.
Chip in (road users, road officials, designers, social professionals, science & techs, fundraisers & grant application specialists, etc)….. all interested in road safety….. able to perceive potential of concept.

The initial goals (all images) are:
1. To stimulate… Awareness to momentum and its presence on our roads.
2. To stimulate… Discussion and argument (debate) from road users, in response to seeing this image and being aware of the accompanying explanations available (applied in a campaign and for now, found here on this website).

Two questions are asked of this poster:
1. If you knew what momentum was…. would you recognise the poster to be correct?
2. Would you agree, momentum is relevant to road safety?


Comment and contact:
– This website has a contact form on it’s CONTACT page….. for direct communication with project admin.
– This poster has it’s own comments box.
– There is a facebook page which also accommodates live feed comments and reply

    You can place any feedback relating to the poster, but these 2 key question points would be useful:

    1. If you knew what momentum was…. would you recognise the poster to be correct?
    2. Would you agree, momentum is relevant to road safety?

    * Leave honed, constructive info, feedback here.
    * Facebook page has posters up….. for open comments

      The words “get it?” are very good as it makes you first say no! (if honest as no science knowledge). But this is good as is stimulating for conversation and info on relevant.
      The info given with this poster here is well put, able to follow, able to learn.

      I would think some more than others would enjoy “learning” this
      I am sure they may then “discuss and argue” the points.
      I would think this would add to road safety
      Very interesting idea.

    Not many would “get it” straight away. So this is great to stimulate discussion. Which would make these visuals a great long term campaign so as to enable and consider “speeding” issues.
    Nicely Done.

      As well as speeding issues, I can see that MOMENTUM issues carries more information and so would be great to introduce this into the vocabulary of the motorist and an understanding of the direction bit (that the vector carries).
      Very interesting concept.
