Is there a mathematical way which shows that the slower an object is travelling, the less force it will exert upon colliding?

Would it make sense if i said:

Momentum = mass x velocity

Therefore, the slower an object the less momentum it will have. Upon collision with another object, there will be a change in momentum.

But the change in momentum is impulse, which equals Force x Change in time

Therefore with less velocity, there is less momentum which results in less change in momentum which can be attributed to a smaller force?
