download (14)It might seem obvious to the average Home AUVI reader what exactly is the purpose of a collision repair Salt Lake City shop. On the surface level the purpose of a collision repair shop in Salt Lake City, Utah is to repair the damage incurred after a collision between two or more vehicles or between a vehicle and some other object that happens to occur in or near Salt Lake City. All this is reasonable and in actual fact very true. However, there is a more subtle aspect associated with the true nature of collision repair that deserves further exploration.


A collision between two objects is a complicated phenomenon and can describe a wide range of events. For example a collision can occur between two or more moving objects or between one or more moving objects and one or more stationary objects. Moreover, all of the moving objects can (and in all likelihood will) be moving at different speeds and will have different masses. All this complexity will determine what kind and what degree of damage will be experienced by each object. Much of this can be described and predicted through the equations of standard Newtonian physics.

The repair of these collisions will in turn be to a large extent determined by the type of damage incurred. Accordingly, the mass and speed of each of each object involved in the collision will impact the repairs required to fix the damage caused by the collision. The mass and speed of each object involved in the collision is also determined by a number of factors. For example the make and model of each car determines the type of materials it will have been constructed with. In the same respect, the psychological profile of the driver and his or her particular schedule on the day of the collision will in all likelihood determine the speed of the vehicle.
