Hi everyone, First off I do realise that I can't directly convert force to velocity. My scenario is that I have a machine part and I have found that it begins to crack when a point load of approx 2800N is exerted onto its tip. What I am trying to calculate/approximate is if I dropped the machine part (approx mass = 1kg) what velocity would it need to have when it hit the floor for the force/deceleration to equate to 2800N. I realise that dropping it on different materials will change the result but again I am only looking for an approximation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
