Problem 16CQ

What is an inelastic collision? What is a perfectly inelastic collision?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 2:

Inelastic Collision:

If the collision between two bodies produces a loss in kinetic energy, the kinetic energy could not be conserved. This kind of collision is known as an inelastic collision. The loss in kinetic energy changes in the form of heat or sound. But the linear momentum of the system conserved in this collision.

Ex:         a bullet embeds itself in a block of wood,

        Automobile collisions
