The Impact Power property of an object represents the rate that energy from collisions is added to the object over time. Impact Power is a read-only property that is continually calculated by Universe Sandbox.
Impact Power can be viewed using the following units:
- Solar luminosity (L star) = 3.846×1026 W
- Watts (W) is the SI unit for luminosity.
Impact Power is one of several sources of energy that can increase an object's Average Surface Temperature. If the object is not currently experiencing a collision, the Impact Power will be zero.
