What is an inelastic collision? What is a perfectly inelastic collision?
Step-by-step solution In this problem explain the following terms with proper example and formulas. Step 1 of 4 Inelastic collision is the type of collision in which the kinetic energy of a system is not conserved. Step 2 of 4 Suppose two objects with the velocities and respectively, masses and respectively. So, the initial kinetic energy of the system is, Here, is the initial kinetic energy of the system.
