Trying to get the force of impact if a man hit the bonnet

  1. Nov 21, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    can someone tell me how to go about this question please;
    we are trying to get the force of impact if a man hit the bonnet that is stagnant(the car is not moving) the man is in front of the car and also the pulling force if he tries to forcefully pull the door handel;
    Data given are;
    Man = 105 kg
    Car = 1318 kk
    Gravity = 9.8(normal)
    hieght of man = 192m
    Hieght of car= not really specified just the car is a vw golf so i guess it should be about 1.2 m



    2. Relevant equations

    F=G*M1*M2/distance



    3. The attempt at a solution

    in this case what distance should be used, what effects will be visible???:cry:
