When a wrecking ball hits a wall it is not moving fast How can it have enough momentum to knock down a wall?

Momentum is a function of both mass and speed. The wrecking ball isn't moving very fast, but it is extremely heavy; that is where its momentum comes from.

A piece of putty moving with 1 unit of momentum strikes to a heavy bowling ball that is initially at rest After the putty sticks to the ball both are set in motion with a combined momentum that is?

1 unit.

Why is it easier to move a ping pong ball than a bowling ball?

Tennis balls are lighter than cricket balls. Therefore less mass. If a tennis ball travels at the same speed its momentum (mass x velocity) is lower. Therefore less momentum an easier to stop. Short answer, less mass and same speed means less momentum

A baseball flies through an open window and collides with a vase The momentum of the ball and vase after the collision is?

A baseball flies through an open window and collides with a vase. The momentum of the ball and vase after the collision is the same as the momentum of the ball alone before the collision.

A ball rolls down a hill and hits a box the momentum of the ball decreases what happens to its momentum?

Momentum (as energy) isn't lost, it is transferred. Momentum is lost to friction when the ball is rolling, but in the described situation, the momentum is basically all transferred to the box upon impact. The box may tip over if light enough, or the box may break, or if heavy enough and built well enough, the box may absorb the impact and be left seemingly untouched. If the ball continues to roll after impact (if it bounces over/around/off of the box, then only partial momentum has been transferred to the box.

Does the surface of a ball affect momentum?

Yes, the texture of the ball's surface affects the way it flies hence affecting the ball's momentum through the air. The most common application of this is in golf, where some very highly trained physicists are hard at work creating new and innovative shapes for the dimples in a golf ball.
