If the increase in the kinetic energy of a body is 22%, then the increase in the momentum will be

(1) 22%

(2) 44%

(3) 10%

(4) 300%

(3) $P=\sqrt{2mE}.$ If m is constant then

$\frac{{P}_{2}}{{P}_{1}}=\sqrt{\frac{{E}_{2}}{{E}_{1}}}=\sqrt{\frac{1.22E}{E}}$$\frac{{P}_{2}}{{P}_{1}}=\sqrt{1.22}=1.1$

${P}_{2}=1.1{P}_{1}$

So the momentum will increase by 10%
