    Question Momentum or moment?

    I have read both definitions but I still donít see the difference clear to me; could you help me with a couple of examples? Thanks.

    Momentum is a word you will never have to use unless you are a physicist.
    Moment is a period of time, among other things.
    I'll be with you in a moment. It happened a few moments ago.
    The momentum kept the car moving after the driver jumped out.

    Can you give some examples of where you are unsure of which word to use.
