Expert Answer:

The forces which act on bodies for a short time are called impulsive forces.
Examples : 
(i) A bat hitting a ball.
(ii) Firing of gun
(iii) Collision of two billiard balls
Impulsive force is not ocnstant but varies with example.
For example, when a bat hits a ball, the impulsive force changes from zero (at the moment of contact) to a very large within a very short interval of time and then abruptly returns to zero back.
