Do Portal portals violate the laws of momentum and physics?

It's an interesting question.

I wonder about the momentum and velocity vectors instantaneously changing direction upon going through a portal. Anyone who's been through advanced physics knows that "velocity" is a vector and "speed" is merely a quantity. It stands to reason that speed is conserved whereas velocity is altered. While kinetic energy is conserved, potential energy is not. So the real question is what happens to the potential energy added or subtracted.
