    why so impulsive?

    Hi iitjee10! :smile:

    Impulse of force (or torque) is force (or torque) times time.

    (as opposed to work done , which is force times distance)

    Impulse = change in momentum

    (as opposed to force = rate of change in momentum)

    Did you have a specific type of problem in mind? :smile:
