    Assuming constant mass, it is relatively easy to measure velocity before and after an impulse.

    F = m*a (Newton dixit)

    if you multiply both terms by the time t you get :

    F*t = m*a*t

    since a*t = V, then :

    F*t = m*V

    The usefulness depends upon the problem you have to solve an the initial data you are given
