The equation of motion of a penetrating projectile can be integrated the force law depends only on the depth of penetration x and the velocity and has either of the two general forms R c . gx . fv or R ax vexp 2 lambda bxvexp 2, both of which include as special cases the classical sectional-pressure theories of penetration. The second of these has been discussed in a previous report. The present report summarizes the separable force laws represented by the first.
