```							Heavy object has the larger momentum.Momentum of a particle (p) depends on the kinetic energy of that particle (Ek) by the relation,P = √2mEk …… (2)From equation (2) we observed that, momentum of a particle (p) is directly proportional to the mass of the particle (m).Since both the light and the heavy object have equal kinetic energy, therefore heavier one has the larger momentum.

```							Momentum is directly proportional to massand kinetic energy . Since , kinetic energy is equal as it is given . More the mass, more the momentum.Thus, a heavy object has more momentum than a lighter object.
