(statistical mechanics)
A stress which arises, in a theory taking the motions of individual molecules into account, from the existence of a velocity distribution of molecules, an example is the pressure of an ideal gas.

Mention should also be made about the fact that the way impact load hardness is expressed by energy values has better data reproducibility as compared to other methods as both kinetic stress energy and the recoil one include speed, thus being possible to eliminate an important error source by making it easier (Gutt 1995).
