Problem 7CQ

Two particles collide, one of which was initially moving and the other initially at rest. a. Is it possible for ?both particles to be at rest after the collision? Give an example in which this happens, or explain why it can’t happen. b. Is it possible for ?one particle to be at rest after the collision? Give an example in which this happens, or explain why it can’t happen.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 4 Fig;Elastic collision Step 2of 4 a)Any two bodies striking each other is called collision. The bodies after the collision comes to rest. In the above case, one is moving another remain at rest so it is inelastic collision when the moving body is collide with rest body friction takes place between two bodies and due to friction heat will liberate and energy will losses in the form of heat or light and mass increases and the momentum is conserved
