The visual perception of momentum in collision events on the distances of objects' movements that were hit


Journal of Liberal Arts and Sciences Sapporo Medical College 28: 1-8
The visual perception of momentum in collision events on the distances of objects' movements that were hit
The judged distance of occluded movement by the hit object (B) in a linear collision event are used as parameters in order to examine if the dynamic properties (i.e., momentum, kinetic energy etc.) of the object (A) which hit object B are perceived. As a result the judged distances of B's movement change with two variables of the collision event (the size difference between two colliding objects and the velocity of object A before the collision), which give the evidence that observers perceive the momentum of object A before the collision. But the results also indicate that some observers are dependent on only one of two variables to perceive the dynamic properties of object A. This requires further investigations about the individual differences of the perception of dynamic properties.
