That is your explanation of the laws of motion?
And you have the nerve to tell 'truthers' that they do not understand the physics?
That is not an explanation of the equal opposite reaction and conservation of momentum laws, that I asked for.
All you've done is prove once again you do not understand those laws. You're not even close to explaining those laws, let alone in context.
Equal opposite reaction has nothing to do with the 'fracture of connected elements', who the hell would even say that? It is the law that says when
two objects collide the forces felt by both objects is EQUAL, regardless of the velocity of either object. Which debunks the claim that the falling
floors overcame the resistance because of its velocity, and dynamic loading. You ignore mass in your hypothesis, and the fact that mass is more
important in this context than velocity, or dynamic loading. 15 floors has less mass than 95 floors, and when you apply the laws correctly 15 floors
can not crush 95 floors.
Conservation of momentum means all objects with momentum want to continue that momentum. When two objects collide they both want to continue their
momentum, equally (3rd law also comes into play here), the object with the most mass will lose less momentum than the lesser mass. So the larger
mass will receive less damage than the lesser mass.
This is why the bug hitting the windshield of the buss question I keep asking is important, it proves that mass, not velocity, decides what receives
the most damage.
Understand all that, and you can not fail to see that 15 floors can not crush 95 floors. Simple high school physics hooper.
