**The
Impulse Of A Force**
The impulse
of a force is the product of the force and time. From the equation of force,
**F
= m(v-u)/t**
**Ft
= mv - mu**
Ft is
the Impulse of the force, and as shown above, it is equal to change in momentum **(mv
- mu)**.
The
symbol of the Impulse of a force is **I**.
Therefore, **I
= Ft = Change in momentum**

law of motion here. ** See Newton's Third Law Of Motion here.
