Abstract
The mechanics of the bones fracture is studied. The usefulness of simple physical consideration for studying of the bone fracture phenomenon is shown. Some quantitative estimations of potential energy of the bone elastic deformations as well as of impulsive forces for bone fracture, caused by sudden collision, by a fall, by road traffic accident etc., have been obtained. The dependences of the impulsive forces on the relative velocity of colliding bodies and of collision time have been established.
