Where *Δp* is the impulse and *W* is the work done.

#### Explanation:

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:
