How to calculate , acceleration, force, momentum and impulse?

    How to calculate , acceleration, force, momentum and impulse???

    I'm supposed to be able to calculate all of these things: velocity, acceleration, force, momentum and impulse. However, the physics course I'm taking explains it horribly!
    I think the formulas are: distance over time= velocity, change in velocity over change in time= accleration, but i don't know if those are right and can't find the ones for force, momentum and implse. Please help!

    And for those of you who need these formulas too: force is mass times acceleration. I think. You should check that.

    And :The formula for force: force= mass x acceleration
    The formula for momentum: momentum= mass x velocity
    The formula for impulse: average force x time

    libertylovescie, we appreciate your exhuberance, but please refrain from posting the basic information. Most of us already know this material.

    Please study it off-line and ask questions when something is not clear.
