State the mathematical relationship between the net force acting on an object and the time taken to change the objects momentum

1. F = d/dt (mv)
in other words force is rate of change of momentum (in the special case of constant mass this is F = m a)

so
F * change in time = change of momentum

This is usually called "impulse".
