# Impulse

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Impulse, abbreviated as I, is the force applied to an object over time.

 $$\large{ I = F \; \Delta t }$$ $$\large{ I = m \; \Delta v }$$ Where: $$\large{ I }$$ = impulse $$\large{ F }$$ = force $$\large{ m }$$ = mass $$\large{ \Delta t }$$ = time differential $$\large{ \Delta v }$$ = velocity differential
