In classical mechanics, impulse is the integral of a force, F, over the time interval, t, for which it acts. In the case of a constant force, the resulting change in momentum is equal to the force itself, and the impulse is the change in momentum divided by the time during which the force acts. Impulse applied to an object produces an equivalent force to that of the object's mass multiplied by its velocity. In an inertial reference frame, an object that has no net force on it will continue at a constant velocity forever. In classical mechanics, the change in an object's motion, due to a force applied, is called its acceleration. The SI unit of measure for impulse is the newton second.
In physics, a rigid body is an object that is not deformed by the stress of external forces. The term "rigid body" is used in the context of classical mechanics, where it refers to a body that has no degrees of freedom and is completely described by its position and the forces applied to it. A rigid body is a special case of a solid body, and is one type of spatial body. The term "rigid body" is also used in the context of continuum mechanics, where it refers to a solid body that is deformed by external forces, but does not change in volume. In continuum mechanics, a rigid body is a continuous body that has no internal degrees of freedom. The term "rigid body" is also used in the context of quantum mechanics, where it refers to a body that cannot be squeezed into a smaller volume without changing its shape.
