2 15.1: Principles of Linear Impulse and Momentum This chapter focuses on the impulse momentum principle This is very useful for solving problems that involve forces, velocities and times Equation of motion for a particle is: ෍ࡲൌ݉ࢇൌ݉ ݀࢜ ݀ݐ If this equation is integrated with respect to time we get: ෍නࡲ݀ݐ ൌ݉න݀࢜ ൌ݉ݒ െ݉ݒ This is the principle of linear impulse and momentum Linear Momentum Linear momentum is defined as ࡸൌ݉࢜ This is a vector with the same direction as the velocity, and has units of kg*m/s or slug*ft/s Its magnitude is equal to the mass multiplied by the velocity Note that the linear impulse and momentum equation can only be applied if the forces that are acting on the particle are constant with time or can be expressed as a function of time
3 Linear Impulse The linear impulse is defined as: ࡵൌ ׬ ࡲ݀ݐ This is a vector that has the same direction as the net force and has units of N*s or lb*s The magnitude of this is force multiplied by the time that it acts over Note that the units of impulse and momentum are the same, although by convention they are written differently If the force is constant with time, the linear impulse becomes: ݀ݐ ൌࡲ ݐ െݐ Graphical Representation of Linear Impulse
