Impact Impulse

Impact Impulse

 

the impulse of the impulsive force acting on each of the colliding bodies during impact. The magnitude of the impact impulse is given by the equation S = Pav τ or

where P is the impulsive force, Pav is its average value during the time of impact, and τ is the duration of the impact. In the general theory of impact the impact impulse is regarded as a measure of the mechanical interaction of bodies during impact.

Considering the oblique impact, additionally it is necessary to analyze the emergent tangential component of the impact impulse, which depends on the characteristics of the impact and on friction between the contacting surfaces.
Thus the tangential component of the impact impulse is proportional to the relative velocity of the colliding bodies.
