Abstract: The participants in our experiment were asked to judge whether simulated horizontal collisions appeared to be “natural” or “unnatural”. We manipulated the simulated materials and the velocity ratio of two colliding objects. The results revealed a fair degree of consistency between predictions of Newtonian mechanics and the participants’ responses.
