Main Question or Discussion Point

Let's say I have a stationary object that gets hit on a flat edge by a sharp point of a moving object. Assume that the moving object also has an linear and angular momentum. Assume that the objects have uniform density, there is no deformation, no friction, and that the collision is ellastic. Also do not assume that the line from the centerpoint of the moving object to the contact point is parallel to the direction of the linear momentum. With all possible information, (momentum, center point, etc) how would you find the force that the moving object applied to the stationary object?

To find the force you need to know how the objects interacted during the collision. That means the you need to know what kind of deformation existed.
