The impact is a short interaction of the solid bodies when they hit each other with non-null velocities. It is essential that the period of hitting, corresponding to the singular phase of motion, is non-zero even very small with respect to other phases of motion before and after the impact (that are the regular phases of motion). Taking this into account usually say about the impact as about just a moment of hitting. At this moment the relative positions of solid bodies remain non-changed but their velocities get the finite increments. The principal issue of the impact theory is the derivation of relations between the bodies velocities before and after the collision.
