Give the equation for momentum, including units

Momentum (kgm/s) = mass (kg) x velocity (m/s)


The time taken for the change in momentum to occur is proportional to the...

Resultant force felt by the object.


Give the equation linking resultant force and momentum

change in momentum (kgm/s) = resultant force (N) x time (s)


What is impulse?

The change in momentum of an object caused by a force acting on it for a length of time.
