Impulse
MomentumMomentum is by definition the product of mass and velocity. So strictly speakingmomentum is a vector quantity.momentum = mass(kg) x velocity(ms
-1
)Hence the unit of momentum is (kg.ms
-1
).Impulse of a forceThis is simply the force multiplied by the time the force acts.We can obtain an expression for this in terms of momentum from Newton's Second Lawequation F=
ma,
where the force F is constant.Remembering that velocity, force and therefore impulse are vector quantities.For a mass
m

, where the impulse is
