# Impulse

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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

## impulse formulas

 $$\large{ I = F \; \Delta t }$$ $$\large{ I = m \; \Delta v }$$

### Where:

$$\large{ I }$$ = impulse

$$\large{ F }$$ = force

$$\large{ m }$$ = mass

$$\large{ \Delta t }$$ = time differential

$$\large{ \Delta v }$$ = velocity differential
