Is the Newton the unit for impulse?
The standard unit for impulse is the Newton-second. (
We can see why this is true by taking a look at what types of units are used in the formulas for impulse:
In the first formula, the average force, measured in Newtons, is multiplied by the change in time, which is measured in seconds. Thus, the result will be in Newton-seconds because we are multiplying Newtons by seconds.
The second formula will agree. Since it can be viewed equally as
