**Abstract:**

Modern Physics is based on the idea of point-particles. But other than brief mention of point-particles in physics education to students, going into details of the theory of point-particles is usually omitted. This is a vast subject and can only deal with some of the highlights, of what is essentially Unified field theory.

{for an atomist theory]

If we consider the established notion of impenetrability the result occurs, that either:

1. Impact is not possible or,

2. Motion transfer is instantaneous

As to the question of having two motions in the same instant, Jammer describes Boscovich’s words: “…it would amount to saying that the body would be bound to have 12 degrees of velocity and 9 at one and the same instant”.1

Boscovich therefore concluded that impact was illogical and proceeded to use forces to describe changes in motion (impulse). Others accepted the notion of instantaneous transfer motion2.

I concur with the later as having two velocities to a body at the same instant only follows from what the concept of an instant is, that is (analogous to mathematical points and area) it is not an interval of time but the separation point of time intervals. So the first velocity occurs up until that instant (of contact) and the second velocity occurs after that instant.

Therefore there is no reason to suppose instantaneous transfer of motion is not possible.
