i know that the formula for impulse is f(delta)t. my question ask " a truck with a mass of 1.20 x 10^3 kg has its brakes applied for 5.50s as it slows down from 24.0m/s, west to 10.4m/s west. determine the magnitude and direction of the impulse provided by the brakes." i know you need to use the formula(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f(delta)t = m(delta)(vf-vi). but since i want the impulse do i just fill in the right side of the formula and git impulse or do i use the time also. thanks.
