Inelastic Collision Example Problem – Physics Homework Help   Recently updated !

A collision is considered an inelastic collision when kinetic energy is lost during the collision. This inelastic collision example problem will show how to find the final velocity of a system and the amount of energy lost from the collision. Inelastic Collision Example Problem Question: A 3000 kg truck travelling […]

Elastic Collision Example Problem – Physics Example Problems

Elastic collisions are collisions between objects where both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. This elastic collision example problem will show how to find the final velocities of two bodies after an elastic collision. This illustration shows a generic elastic collision between two masses A and B. The variables involved […]
