Incorrect spelling

inpact

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is a misspelling (maybe due to prefixes used before some adjectives in- and im-; impact is however not a word with prefix, but a separate word). Impact comes from Latin word impactus (past participle form of impingere).


Correct spelling

impact

Correct spelling, explanation: this is a word originating in Latin impactus; only this shows us that this is the correct pronunciation. Also, inpact (an incorrect form) is probably mistaken with prefix in-; impact however is a separate, independent word.
