Elastic and Inelastic Collisions. Chapter 6 Section 3. Collisions. There are many different collisions in which two objects collide. Sports Vehicles Arrow and target. Kinetic Energy and Collisions.
Chapter 6 Section 3
m1v1i + m2v2i = (m1+m2)vf
KElost = KEi – KEf
Kinetic Energy Lost = Initial Kinetic Energy – Final Kinetic Energy
m1v1i + m2v2i = m1v1f + m2v2f
½m1v1i²+ ½m2v2i²= ½m1v1f²+ ½m2v2f²
