**Impulse**(physics) In classical mechanics,

**impulse**(symbolized by J or Imp) is the

**integral**of a force, F, over the time interval, t, for which it acts.

**Impulse**applied to an object produces an equivalent vector change in its linear

**momentum**, also in the same direction.

Similarly one may ask, what is impulse and how is it related to momentum?

**Impulse**is a quantity that is closely related to

**momentum**. When an object has a

**momentum**, and a force is applied for an amount of time, the

**momentum**can change to a new value . The

**impulse**-

**momentum theorem**states that the

**impulse**is equal to this change in

**momentum**.

What is momentum and impulse in physics?

Momentum is mass in motion, and any moving object can have momentum. An object's change in momentum is equal to its impulse. Impulse is a quantity of

**force**times the time interval. Impulse is not equal to momentum itself; rather, it's the increase or decrease of an object's momentum.What is the relation of momentum and impulse?

The impulse-momentum theorem states that the

**change**in momentum of an object equals the impulse applied to it. The impulse-momentum theorem is logically**equivalent**to Newton's second law of motion (the force law).
