On this paper we consider the case of impacts between rigid objects. We are interested on estimating the impact pulse-width and peak force for different
materials over a wide range of masses. Some experiments were conducted in order to calculate real values for specific masses, and then a fitting curve model was used
to predict new parameters for objects with different masses.
