Best Answer

here are a few ideas. (assuming that you break a couple laws of everything.)

*The unstoppable force would change the direction of motion.

*The Unstoppable force would pass through it.

*And the most probable (in this impossible situation): nothing, pure unadulterated nothing.

*This is a paradox and it is impossible.The irresistible force paradox, also called the unstoppable force paradox, is a classic paradox formulated as "What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?" This paradox is a form of the omnipotence paradox, which is a simple demonstration that challenges omnipotence: ("Can God create a stone so heavy that not even God is strong enough to lift it?"). The immovable object and the irresistible force are both implicitly assumed to be indestructible, or else the question would have a trivial resolution ("it destroys it"). Furthermore, it is assumed that they are two separate entities, since an irresistible force is implicitly an immovable object, and vice versa.

The paradox arises because it rests on two premises-that there exist such things as irresistible forces and immovable objects-which cannot both be true at once. If there exists an irresistible force, it follows logically that there cannot be any such thing as an immovable object, and vice versa

What would happen if an immovable object got hit by an unstoppable force?

If the unstoppable object was smaller, then it would pierce a hole through the immovable object, not moving the object, and not stopping.


What will happen if an immovable object collide with an unstoppable object?

Then you have two options: If the "unstoppable" objects stops, then it wasn't really unstoppable; and if the "immovable" object starts moving, then it wasn't really immovable. In the real world, there are no immovable or unstoppable objects. Any time two objects collide, the speed of both will change.


What were to happen if an immovable object was collided by an unstoppable force?

Quite simply, there is no such thing as an "immovable object" or an "unstoppable force". In general, what happens when a force acts on an object is described by Newton's Second Law.


What happens when an irresistable force meets an immovable object?

This is an exercise in logic. If an unstoppable force exists, then an immovable object cannot exist, because it would be able to be moved by the unstoppable force, and vice versa. Sideways Logic The unstoppable force does not "stop", the immovable object does not move : the unstoppable force ricochets off the immovable object!


What does the phrase an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

the force goes through the object


What net force is acting on an immobile object?

It would have to be an unstoppable force if the object was immovable.

If and unstoppable forces collides with as such an immovable object what could or would happen?

I am just wondering and I know a paradoxical question does not have a factual answer, but I am curious about the theories... :D


Is there a question that cannot be answered that doesnt have to do with science?

Basic paradoxes are examples of questions that cannot be answered. For example, what happens when an immovable object meets an unstoppable force? Since neither an immovable object nor an unstoppable force exist in reality, there is no way to determine what would happen in this theoretical situation. Source: personal experience


What happens when an immovable object is struck by an unstoppable force?

Since these are extremes that cannot be acheived due to the laws of physics, it cannot happen. However, If it could happen, I suspect a paradox would occur.

What happens when an unstopabul force meat an emovebal object?

Obviously you can't have both an unstoppable force and an immovable object. If the force moves the object, then the object isn't unmovable. If the force doesn't move it, then the force isn't unstoppable.
