Impact Velocity

“Captain, this conveyance’s top speed is a fraction of the Exodus Black’s when it crashed into Nessus!” “Try not to find out for yourself.” —Failsafe

Definition/Summary:

Impact velocity

  • The effective velocity at which an object is traveling at a moment in which it impacts another object
  • If an object A is traveling without any outside force and it impacts another object B that is at rest, then the impact velocity is the velocity of the object A when it strikes the object B at rest
    If Object B is traveling at the same rate before the impact then the absolute value of both velocities are added together to determine the effective velocity at the moment of impact
