Answer 1:
The force is proportional to the mass and the
acceleration or in this case the deceleration of
the moving objects. The deceleration (a), of
one plane is the change in its velocity
(dv), divided by the collision time, (dt) makes
this equation: a=dv/dt. The same is true for the
second plane. The force on each plane is its
mass (m), times the deceleration (a): F=
m*a. And the sum of the two forces is the total
force.
