Two forces produce equal impulses but the second force acts for a time twice that of the first force. Which force, if either is larger?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I derived it using the formula but not too sure if this is the right soultion

Ft = impulse

Impulse are the same for the two forces so let impulse = 100N.s

let time = 10s

Ft= 100

F(10) = 100

F = 10N

F(2t) = 100

F(20) = 100

F = 5N

therefore the first force is larger

Is that the right approach?
