What is it about?

Collision processes are widely represented in natural phenomena. The article investigates almost all the consequences of the collision of two significantly different masses and provides comprehensive explanations of the results.

Why is it important?

The collision of meteorites with the Earth, the penetration of armor by a cumulative jet, the fall of a person into water, the formation of the smallest drops during rain, etc., are all examples of collisions of liquid bodies. Our findings made it possible to explain all the consequences of such collisions.


The findings in this article help explain the consequences of many natural phenomena. In particular, the detection of a cascade process when a rain drop falls on a liquid surface makes it possible to determine the spectrum of generated daughter drops.
