It is an impossible supposition," said the practical Barbicane; "unless that impulsive force
had failed; but even then its speed would diminish by degrees, and it would not have stopped suddenly.
The model is based on the description of the antenna as a forced-damped oscillator attached to a set of active threads (groups of scolopidia) that provide an impulsive force
when they twitch.
This model permits analytical definition of the law of motion x(t), the change of the velocity v(t) and impulsive force F(t) during the impact :
Impulsive forces are a response to the deformations, arising near the contact area and propagating in the bodies.
The meter has to apply an impulsive force
to the surface whose going is to be defined.
Badly Drawn Boy is known as a volatile and impulsive force
when it comes to live performance.
The towers situated in tsunami prone areas were affected by the impact created impulsive forces
to tower and those towers were failed and collapsed.
