A #3# kilogram object is acted upon by an impulse having a magnitude of #15# #N*s#. What is the magnitude of the object's change in momentum due to this impulse?
Newton's 2nd law of motion may also be stated in terms of momentum as follows :
The resultant force acting on an object is directly proportional to the rate of change in momentum brought about.
Rearranging yields :
Thus impulse (
