Based on physical and geometrical considerations, the initial conditions for the problem of a spherical projectile impacting normally on a semi-infinite target are derived. Initial conditions, as used here, are implicitly defined as the geometry and state of the projectile and target materials during a time in which uniform compression exists. Results amenable to experimentation are discussed and an example that illustrates a test for the theory is presented. Author
