# Momentum and Impulse

How is the impulse imparted to an object in a collision related to the change in momentum of the object? Investigate the relationship between the change in momentum of a cart undergoing a collision and the impulse imparted to the cart to change its momentum. Establish a measurement-based relationship between the change in momentum and the impulse.
