How does impulse relate to work?
I think this question can be answered by combining the equations for impulse and work done.
1. The equation for impulse derives from Newton's second law of motion:
Δp is the change of momentum, which is referred to as "impulse".
2. The equation for work done is:
d is the distance moved in the direction of the force.
3. If we substitute for force, F, we can combine the equations:
