Linear Impulse – Momentum Relationship Σ F t = m v = m(v2-v1) Impulse (Ns) Product of a force applied over a period of time   ( Σ F t) Momentum (kg m/s) Quantity of motion. Product of mass * velocity   (m v) Positive (negative) changes  in Linear Momentum are  created by  Net  positive (negative) Linear Impulse.
