Re: Does Velocity Play A Factor?

: Is an objectís velocity a factor in the amount of distortion excerted on the object by the tidal forces near a black holeís event horizon.

Just guessing, but it seems to me that faster speed would decrease duration of exposure to tidal forces, but with shorter period between min & max (more violent). I always learned that velocity is both speed and direction, not speed alone, so in that sense, if your velocity approaches the event horizon, it obviously will have more stress than if your velocity does not. Hope this helps.
