Abstract: Michotte's "launching and releasing" (collison) phenomenon was observed by 2 groups of Subjects, one group to judge the velocity-ratio, the other, the size-ratio of the stimulus conditions. Findings: "(a) on inverse relationship between physical velocity-ratios and geometric mean weight-ratios, (b) a direct relationship between the physical size-ratios and the geometric mean weight-ratios, (c) a direct relationship between the physical velocity-ratios and the geometric mean velocity-ratios, and (d) no relationship between the physical size-ratios and the geometric mean velocity-ratios."
