# Solve physics problem related to collision between airliner and a bird

Physics Tools for classical mechanics- Use this simple tool to solve physics problem related to collision between airliner and a bird Use this simple tool to solve physics problem related to collision between airliner and a bird. Change the mass of the bird and speed of the aircraft. Enter a length of the bird for estimation of the impact time. These assumptions made in this calculation:
Bird is riding with the airliner after the collision
Bird’s velocity is negligible compared to that of the airliner
Total time taken to crush the bird (estimated impact time) = Length of the bird / Speed of the airliner
Impulsive applied to the bird

Impulse    Use this simple tool to solve physics problem related to collision between airliner and a bird.

Useful conversion you may need in this kind of problem

Force
1 lb = 4.45 N
1 N = 1 kg m s-2
1 N = 105 dyne = 0.225 lb

Mass
1 kg = 2.20 lb (where g = 9.8 ms-2)

Speed
1 mi/h = 1.47 ft/s = 1.61 km/h = 0.447 m/s
1 km/h = 0.278 m/s = 0.621 mi/h = 0.911 ft/s

Length
1 ft = 30.5 cm
1 m = 3.28ft
1 mi = 5280 ft = 1.61 km
1 km = 0.621 mi

( mi = mile, ft = feet, km = kilo meter, m = meter, h = hour, s = second )
