Identical forces act for the same length of time on two different masses. The change in momentum of the smaller mass is

A) smaller than the change in momentum of the larger mass, but not zero.
B) larger than the change in momentum of the larger mass.
C) zero.
D) equal to the change in momentum of the larger mass.

Umpulse is force*time which then that impulse is equal to the change in momentum. So if the impulses are the same, ...
