At the end of the session, it is intended that you will be able to: 36.Explain the concept of impulse-momentum
theorem (CO1) 37. Solve problems concerning impulse-momentum theorem (CO2) 38. Apply the law of conservation of momentum to problems involving elastic and inelastic collisions in one and two dimensions (CO2)
SI unit kg · m /s , or, equivalently, N · s ) is the product of the mass and velocity of an object ( p = m v ).

7.1 The Impulse-Momentum Theorem DEFINITION OF IMPULSE The impulse of a force is the product of the average force and the time interval during which the force acts: t F J Impulse is a vector quantity and has the same direction as the average force.
