# What would happen if an immovable object was struck by an unstoppable force [closed]

Maybe these two types of objects do not exist but hypothetically, what would happen if an unstoppable force struck an immovable object. In terms of visually and in Physics terms?

Because it's a nonsense question. You posit two things that cannot both exist. It's wordplay, not physics. – coneslayer Feb 25 '11 at 15:10
$\infty-\infty$; the result depends on how immovable is the object and how unstoppable is the force. Off topic anyway [= – mbq Feb 25 '11 at 15:12
Unstoppable force (F) can move anything. Nothing can move immovable object (O). $\rightarrow$ F and O can't exist simultaneously. Universe will either have F or O, but not both. – Pratik Deoghare Feb 25 '11 at 15:17
I actually like this question, or at least the idea behind it. It could be rephrased in more specific terms, e.g. A meteor hitting the earth, a meteor hitting a neutron star, a drop of water hitting a pond, a uranium or diamond projectile hitting a steel plate. All of these have characteristics in common, I.e. Symmetry breaking, shock wave, splash, etc. They correspond to what really happens when, as close as we can experimentally arrange it, this type of primordially interesting experiment is in fact done. Others could talk about Pb-Pb collisions and quark plasmas. It could be very cool. – sigoldberg1 Feb 25 '11 at 18:13
