we have two concepts(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1)if force is applied for a distance x(i.e work) it increases the kinetic energy of a mass

2)if force is applied for a time t(i.e impulse) it increases the momentum of the mass

why there are two concepts. Are the above two same?
