Explanation:
Your text is a typical SONK-text. Try to make it understandable! "low energy impact" simply means that the mass times the velocity to the power of two is a low value. Since the velocity is high the mass must be low; thus "små". Q.E.D.

P.S. SONK stands for "Scientification Of No Knowledge".


    Common sense.
