Now there is an old theory..."transmission dwell". British seemed fond of it, the idea that the time spent applying force was somehow an off shoot of the momentum theory. The general idea being that a 10 foot pound force applied slowly on a bank vault door with your hip will move it...the same 10 foot pounds applied by a swinging fist just breaks your hand without moving the door.
Energy is the product of force over time. A force, even at the same pressue, that lasts 1/100 of a second is not producing the same "enery" as an equal force that last 10 seconds. The latter is producing 10,00 times as much energy.
