Ok so my seven year old came up to me and asked me a question the other day. I told him he would have to ask his mother she told him to ask me. So the question is: "What happens when an unstoppable force hits an unmovable object?" Now what should I tell him I told him I would ask some friends for the answer. What should I tell him? Please help so I can give him a good educated answer.

Hello jyaegel! It's a trick question. you can tell him like this: if there is an unstoppable force there will not exist an unmovable object, and if there is an unmovable object there will not exist an unstoppable force. they can not exist at the same time. So the answer is nothing will happen, they just can not meet each other.

Kinda like if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it does it still make noise.

If the unstoppable force hits an immovable object, nothing will happen. There may be big sound. Both objects may be equal qualities that dispense each other. Understanding this by somebody is not an easy task.

When these two object collides they would probably be destroyed even to pieces because the motion would cause too much energy and this energy would have built up. I guess the impact would really depend on the force of the moving object.
