## Homework Statement

Don't know how to calculate this. Not sure I care either, but I figured you people do care and know. I'm having a little dispute with someone about pounds per square inch of say an object moving at a high rate of speed on impact with say steel. So here is the scenerio. Let's take a square inch cube that weighs in at one pound, and is traveling at 600 MPH, and it slams one of it's square faces into a large block of steel. The question is how many pounds per square inch is exerted on the large block of steel?
