This report results from a contract tasking University of Kent as follows The need to understand the physics of, and to define the parameters of, energy partitioning in the impact processes at very high velocities led to a research thrust focused on the 2 MV Van de Graaff facility at Kent. A key basis for this research is summarized in the published IAF paper Ratcliff et all., Appendix A where the measurement of impact plasma and momentum leading to derivation of ejecta kinetic energy is described.
