I'm a little confused about momentum and impulse.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Its not a single problem but just how they relate.

For example if a 2kg block moving at 3 m/s hits a 6 kg block,

then it will move 1 m/s because momentum is conserved with

6 momentos on either side of the equation. If the impact time is 1 millisecond

whats the impulse? I dont know how you get impulse from momentos.

Impulse is force x delta time and Momentum is mass x velocity, but in this problem

how do i get impulse using the fact that the system's momentum is 6 momentos.
