## Why is impulse the same for both objects?

Newton’s third law dictates that the forces on the trucks are equal but opposite in direction. Impulse is force multiplied by time, and time of contact is the same for both, so the impulse is the same in magnitude for the two trucks. Change in momentum is equal to impulse, so changes in momenta are equal.

**Is impulse equal for both objects?**

When a force is applied on an object for some amount of time, the object experiences an impulse. This impulse is equal to the object’s change of momentum.

**Do two objects experience the same impulse?**

Yes. The two objects experience the same force (NIII) and impact time, so they have the same impulse. Impulse equals the change in momentum, so the two objects have the same change in momentum.

### What equates to the impulse between two objects?

The impulse experienced by an object is the force•time. The momentum change of an object is the mass•velocity change. The impulse equals the momentum change.

**Is impulse equal and opposite?**

The impulses that colliding objects exert on each other are equal and opposite because the time for which they interact are equal for both the objects. According to Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion, forces are equal and opposite, so impulses that colliding objects exert on each other are equal and opposite.

**Does a moving object have impulse?**

impulse is the product of the average force and the short time interval for which it acts and causes a change in momentum of a body, A moving object can experience an impulse if a force acts on it and changes its momentum.

## When comparing the momentum of two objects which of the following is correct?

When comparing the momentum of two moving objects, which of the following is correct? The object with the higher velocity will have less momentum if the masses are equal. The more massive object will have less momentum if its velocity is greater.

**How is the impulse relationship related to Newton’s second law?**

The force is applied for a longer time in the long cannon. How is the impulse -momentum relationship related to Newton’s second law? To impart the greatest momentum to an object, you must: exert the greatest force over the longest time.

**What are possible formulas for impulse?**

Impulse: Quick Guide

- Impulse = Force * time = force * Delta t. Delta t = t^final – t^initial.
- Impulse = Delta p = p^final – p^initial.

### Can a stationary object have impulse?

An object cannot possess impulse just as it cannot possess force.

**Does a moving object possess both impulse and momentum?**

The impulse is the quantity defined as the force multiplied by the time it is applied. Impulse and momentum have the same units; when an impulse is applied to an object, the momentum of the object changes and the change of momentum is equal to the impulse.

**How is the impulse and momentum of an object related?**

1 The impulse experienced by an object is the force•time. 2 The momentum change of an object is the mass•velocity change. 3 The impulse equals the momentum change.

## How is the impulse of two different objects pure?

The collision is perfectly central and ‘elastic’ e.g. with no additional internal absorption or energy conversion. [ the impulse exchange is pure ] meaning there is absolutely no transitive physical deformation between the colliding objects, neither elastic, nor plastic during the collision.

**When do two objects collide their momentum is equal?**

When two objects collide the total momentum before the collision is equal to the total momentum after the collision (in the absence of external forces). This is the law of conservation of momentum. It is true for all collisions.

**What is the impulse of a collision between two particles?**

A collision occurs between particles A and B which are moving in opposite directions in the same straight line. The impulse on each particle in the collision is 2N.s, it is also given that A has 0.4 kg, and initial velocity 3 m/s.
