If a car is traveling at 10 miles per hr. and then doubles its speed does the momentum double as well?

No, the momentum will actually quadruple. Linear momentum can be expressed by the equation \[mv ^{2}\] if the original velocity (v) is 10mph then the linear momentum would be \[m(10)^{2}\] which becomes 100m. If the speed doubles, the velocity is now 20mph, and your linear momentum becomes. \[m(20)^{2}\] which simplifies to 400m. As you can see, the linear moment went from 100m to 400m, a quadrupled amount.
