The mathematical concept of an impulse is widely utilized in many disciplines, including physics, electricity, optics, etc. It is used to represent entities that are concentrated in a single point, such as a point mass, a point charge, etc. Although such entities do not exist in the real world, this theoretical concept is very useful since it may considerably simplify derivations [Bracewell86 Chapter 5; Brigham88 Appendix A].
