The Concept of Collision Strength and Its Applications

... When we say that one body is warmer or colder than another one, it means that the “temperature” of one body is higher or lower than that of another. When we say that one collision is “stronger” than another one, what does “stronger” really mean? Is there any scientific or physical term, which acts l ...

Momentum, Energy and Collisions

... For two interacting objects, if there is no net external force then we expect the total momentum of the system to be conserved. In contrast, energy is only conserved when certain types of forces are exerted between the objects. Collisions are classified as elastic (kinetic energy is conserved), inel ...

# Moby Prince disaster

The Moby Prince disaster was a major naval accident resulting in 140 deaths. It occurred in the late evening of Wednesday 10 April 1991, in the harbor of Livorno, Italy. It is the worst disaster in the Italian merchant navy since World War II. It is also considered one of the two worst environmental disasters in Italian history, along with the explosion and loss of the tanker Amoco Milford Haven on the following day in an unrelated accident near Voltri.MV Moby Prince, a ferry owned by Navigazione Arcipelago Maddalenino (NAVARMA) Lines collided with the oil tanker Agip Abruzzo, sparking an extensive fire that ravaged the ship. The only survivor of the crew and passengers of the ferry was a young ship's boy, Alessio Bertrand from Naples. The other 140 on board were killed by the fire or toxic fumes.On 28 May 1998 the ship's hull sunk while impounded in a dock in Livorno harbor; it was later refloated and sent to be scrapped in Turkey.
