What is an elastic collision?

Step-by-step solution In this problem explain the given term with proper examples and explanation. Step 1 of 4 Elastic collision is the type of collision in which the kinetic energy of a system is conserved. Step 2 of 4 Suppose two objects with the velocities , respectively and the masses and . So, the total initial kinetic energy of the two objects is, Here, is the initial kinetic energy of the two objects.
