Momentum & Impulse. Excerpts from Chapters 9 and 11. Impulse and Momentum. Newton’s 2nd Law of motion can be rewritten by using the definition of acceleration as the change in velocity over the change in time. Impulse and Momentum.
Chapters 9 and 11
The product of force and change in time is called the impulse(symbol is J).
The product of the mass and the velocity is called the momentum (symbol -“rho”) of an object.
The impulse-momentum theorem states that the impulse on an object is equal to the object’s final momentum minus the object’s initial momentum.
Try to use the words impulse, force, and time in your answer.
