Quantitative determination, onrepparttar other hand, involvesrepparttar 119192 determination ofrepparttar 119193 precise number of range. This can be made in two ways. The first one is direct measurement andrepparttar 119194 second isrepparttar 119195 application of laws of physics torepparttar 119196 physical evidence of collisions.
