Homework Help: physics.

Posted by Richard on Sunday, January 10, 2010 at 11:09am.

: When the mass hits the pile, it has kinetic energy. This energy is transformed into other forms of energy as the speed of the falling mass rapidly reduces to zero. As this happens, the pile is forced a small distance into the ground.
question: Explain how a large force is produced when the pile is driven a short distance into the ground ?
any help
