To calculate momentum in Scala, you can use the following formula:

Momentum = Mass * Velocity

Here's a simple example in Scala to calculate momentum:

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ``` ```// Define mass and velocity val mass = 10.0 val velocity = 5.0 // Calculate momentum val momentum = mass * velocity // Print the result println(s"The momentum is: \$momentum") ```

In this example, the variables `mass` and `velocity` represent the mass and velocity of an object, respectively. The momentum is calculated by multiplying the mass and velocity. Finally, the result is printed to the console.

In the provided code snippet, you can calculate momentum by multiplying the mass and velocity as shown. You can further refine the implementation by creating a function for calculating momentum. Here's an example demonstrating the calculation of momentum using a function in Scala:

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 ``` ```// Define a function to calculate momentum def calculateMomentum(mass: Double, velocity: Double): Double = { mass * velocity } // Define mass and velocity val mass = 10.0 val velocity = 5.0 // Calculate momentum using the function val momentum = calculateMomentum(mass, velocity) // Print the result println(s"The momentum is: \$momentum") ```

This implementation encapsulates the calculation of momentum within a function `calculateMomentum`. This approach adds modularity and improves code readability. By calling the function with the appropriate arguments, you can compute the momentum with ease.

Feel free to run this code snippet in your Scala environment to calculate momentum based on the input mass and velocity values.
