Vic, would you call somebody who used incorrect maths or poor logic in their posts? If so, why not call out bad grammar? "You knew what I meant" isn't good enough, love your tools and your tools will love you. Abuse your tools, and tools will abuse you. (take that how you like.)

The CinO guys are probably busy huddled around an altar directing their combined psychic energy to the total defeat of the Flames in game seven.

Granted, the combined psychic energy of the CinO guys probably couldn't coax Joe Thornton to actually shoot the puck when he's alone in the slot, never mind win a hockey game. But still. Dare to dream.

2008-04-16T15:31:00.000-06:00

This is all good stuff, but I'm still not convinced that pure theory is enough, how much of the energy is being dissipated by the bullet disintegrating, the puck rebounding, the player's whole body being jarred back, etc?

I think we need an empirical solution. My MS Paint entry is the nutcracker.

So that heavy

That's funny, and thanks for the pointer, I should have known that.

When bitches come out of the woodwork to snark on somebody's inappropriate use of an apostrophe, typos, overuse of ellipses and emoticons, or the wrong there/their being used ... that gets on

2008-04-16T13:08:00.000-06:00

Military types do quite a lot of ballistics studies on how much damage various projectiles do. And generally speaking, the amount of damage done does not corollate to the energy carried by the projectile -- so E=1/2 mv^2 isn't the whole story. The reason is that a high velocity bullet has the tendancy to go straight through a body. Lower velocity bullets deflect off bones and get several

My lifelong dream of bringing rigorous scientific analysis to taking a shot in the pills has finally been realized.

For that, I thank you.

Can't be givin credit to me, those numbers were mikep's. I'm the kid that went into a 60% final in calculus with an A+, and left the course with a C+.

I can however, dissect anything in the animal kingdom. And coming from a biological standpoint, Thor shouldn't be back at the proverbial plate until the end of the Flyers playoff run. And it'll probably hang a little lower after all the

2008-04-16T09:46:00.000-06:00

That first sentence in the last paragraph should include both kinetic energy and force as indicators of damage done, as well as surface area impacted. Whoops.

Incoming maths from a first-year biomechanics student and former electronics major.

On the subject of "how much would that fucking hurt", then you could look at:
--momentum, m*v, the easiest measure based on a few assumptions about relative puck speed
--kinetic energy, 0.5*m*v^2, see above
--the force imparted, which would be the change in momentum (assume the puck comes to

2008-04-16T09:24:00.000-06:00

IIRC, there are three different ways you could look at this: force (how hard it hits), energy (how much damage is done), and momentum (I have nothing to put inside these brackets).

Given that the original question was how hard it would hit, I think the original equation answers the question.

That said, the other 2 equations are relevant as well. I mean, who doesn't want to do

A preemptive strike at the grammar Nazis: That should read wear a cup.

If only one sentence follows the colon, do not capitalize the first word of the new sentence.

2008-04-15T20:14:00.000-06:00

Surely there are a whack of science types lurking around here, hopefully they chime in.

Yeah, I would really like that, if only to save me from having to call my high school physics teacher about this.

2008-04-15T19:26:00.000-06:00

Vic, after Lapointe took a shot to the nards from Fleury, he said that he knew of at least one NHL player who didn't wear a cup (presumably for that reason). Lapointe declined to name him though.

I think as an NHLer, I'd rather wear a cup than not. Thor's misfortune aside, I've seen a lot more guys take a shot to the harbles from a pissed off goalie's stick than I have take a slapshot

2008-04-15T17:46:00.000-06:00

I think you were right in the first place, DMFB, if the question was "Hey, how much would that hurt?" ... then impulse-momentum applies, no? So m*v is conserved.

Surely there are a whack of science types lurking around here, hopefully they chime in.

In any case, I've taken direct blows to the can a bunch of times, and once the shock of it and the nausea washes over, I was

Godammit! What do I have to do?!?!

Mythbusters-like experiment, obviously. I'd be happy to help, as long as I don't have any projectiles shot at me. We could film it and post it. Maybe we could even get Mike Green to take the slapper. Where's Leonis when we need him? TED!!!! TED!!!!!
