Homework Help: science

Posted by Barbara on Thursday, February 1, 2007 at 4:26pm.

explain the everyday phenomena in term of atomic structure and behavior when you lightly bump into a car, why does it dent and not create a hole?

Although this is not my area of expertise, could there be some explanation in terms of molecular cohesiveness? Possibly the energy of the bump was not sufficient to overcome the energy that holds the molecules together.

I hope this helps a little. Thanks for asking.
