Collisions in a 1-D System 2 t =0 + Δ p Δ ( t ) dt = Δ p = m [ v (0 + ) v (0 )] v (0 + ) v (0 ) = t =0 m Therefore, impulse response is just the natural free response for the initial con- dition: Δ p v (0) = m Key Points All other forces (e.g. gravity, dashpot damping) are considered negligible during impact. As the time interval shrinks, the effect of these finite forces becomes negligible. By direct analogy, for rotational systems one can have torques of an impulsive nature. The impulsive torque changes the angular momentum. τ = Δ ( t ) t =0 + Δ ( t ) dt = Δ H where Δ H is the change in angular momentum of the system. t
