    answer

    mass * velocity = momentum

    Momentum is also the rate of change of force. This can easily be verified by rearranging the equations:

    force = mass * acceleration

    acceleration = velocity / seconds

    momentum = mass * velocity,

    Therefore:

    momentum = force * seconds

    Edited typo.

    Integral

    momentum = force x seconds

    That's impulse, or change in momentum.

    That depends. At an instantaneous point, it is momentum. But Delta Momentum = Force * Delta Time, that is impulse.
