Relationship between Impulse and Momentum?


Impulse describes the transfer of momentum between objects. Impulse shows that changes in momentum depend upon forces and time during which that force occurs. Momentum is the amount or 'quantity of motion' that a body has. Newton's first law (Inertia) states: In the absence of external forces, the total momentum of a given system remains constant. Any change in momentum is equal to the impulse that produces it.

The impulse of a force (also measured in N s) is equal to the
Impulse = Force x time. Momentum = mass x velocity. Ft = mv.
You apply a force to a mass, which accelerates it to velocity v. The product of that force and the period of time it is applied is called impulse. I=Ft. The result of the push or
I'm not familiar with this sort of thing, but Mandlebrot's book "The Misbehavior Of Markets" touches on it. You might be able to find some papers on the quant-fin section
