Hello and thank you for posting your problem to Brainmass.

Here is my solution:

The momentum vector is the velocity vector multiplied by the mass of the particle:

P=mV

V=3i-4j
m=3

P=3(3i-4j)=9i-12j

To find the total magnitude of the momentum, one must find the magnitude of the vector:

|P|=sqrt(Px^2+Py^2)

Where Px is ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides answers to the two questions. It shows how to find the magnitude of the momentum vector and how the Dlambert solution is applied to the sine wave.
