    Sounds like homework. What have you found in your Google/Wiki search?

    I haven't actually searched, I thought I would get a better answer here, it's not homework, it's my own question.

    Hm, I see it is change , thanks, so like ##v## is velocity but ##Δv=v_f-v_0##, but what would be ##Δp## (delta momentum), ##p_1-p_0##?
