For 1D impulse and momentum, we need a more integrated representational set than what Knight’s textbook gives us. They do before and after (sort of vector) diagrams and force vs time graphs for “during”.
I’m not quite ready to stray really far from what Knight supports (since I like the class to be coherent across class and text); so, although I like IF momentum charts (from modeling), I’m thinking more of cycling back to velocity vs. time graphs more strongly and adding momentum vs. time graphs.
Something like this:
