    Regarding the question here, https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/force-vs-time-graph-impulse.665936/ Would it be correct to say that the area under the plotted line equals momentum if the initial momentum were zero?

    (This is NOT a homework question. I am posting here since this was the location of the original thread.)

    The area under the F-t graph is the change in momentum ... yes.
