Abstract: Abstract.Impact experiments on water ice targets were carried out to investigate the partitioning of energy and the mass of water vaporized. A copper projectile accelerated by an electromagnetic gun impacted a low-temperature ice target under a high vacuum condition. The mass of vaporized water gas was measured as a function of impact velocity (54-329 m/s) and ice temperature (130-185 K). Some 0.01-0.03 % of the impact energy is partitioned into ice vaporization at velocities _< 100 m/s. For impacts in the 10…
