Give the equation for momentum, including units

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

2

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

Resultant force felt by the object.

3

Give the equation linking resultant force and momentum

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

4

What is impulse?

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