The other day I was watching an anime called Tenjho Tenge and while a person was training he had to hit a pan that was dangling from a tree, but he had to hit it so it doesnt move, but then he hits it and the pan behind it moves and I'm wondering if you do shift the impact in to the middle could this happen. My guess is no.

Please excuse my run-on sentence.

It would help if you would explain yourself a little better.

Okay thank you. the guy is trying to hit a frying pan ,that's on a tree, so it won't move, and that the force of the impact will go through it. But when he starts hitting it later the pan doesnt move, but the pan behind it moves.

Well, it makes me think of the billiard game... if i'm not mistaken, some pro gamers are capable of hitting two adjacent balls so that the one in the middle doesn't move...
i'll do a brief schematic:

O -------------->OO

here the white ball is shot against two adjacent balls

OO ------------> O

the white ball hits one of the two other balls, and the further one is pushed away, while the one in the middle remains (almost) still...

Its a cartoon, remember physics in movies and cartoons don't imitate reality in many cases.

But if I understand what you are talking about, this should be the same principle.




Its called Newton's cradle.
