Forces Equations: Same Forces?

  1. Jun 1, 2015 #1
    Are two forces in the equation different forces?
    I heard the force in the second equation is like impulsive force. The concept is nebulous to me can someone also elaborate further?

    f=ma
    f= mxΔv/t

    I don't recognize the second equation. Is it really ##F = \frac{\Delta v}{\Delta t}##?

    The second equation is wrong.
