Notice that the article first came out in 2000, yet, there is nothing else out there concerning this idea. There is a reason why this idea never went anywhere. Its basic premise that you can arbitrarily multiply momentum and KE and thereby derive a relevant relationship is fatally flawed,
Look at the first example where the author “derives” a bullet applying a force of 15984.6 pounds to a target. Personally I’m going to stick with standard Newtonian physics where for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. What do you think would happen if your rifle applied a force of 15984.6 lbs. to your shoulder every time you fired?
Sure, its all very logical, and the math sure is impressive. Too bad its all based on a false premise.
Yes its applications would be severely limitted…..To an alternate Universe!:lol:
