Impulse and Momentum Calculator

Impulse and momentum

The impulse-momentum calculator helps you calculate the impulse (J), initial momentum (p₁), and final momentum (p₂).

You can calculate the impulse and momentum by entering the change in velocity, initial velocity, final velocity, mass, force, and time interval.

In case you don’t know, Time t and force F determine a body’s impulse.

J=F x t

The product of an object’s mass m and velocity v is its momentum p.

p=m xv
