Mechanical Energy Changes in Perfectly Inelastic Collisions
Mungan, Carl E.
Physics Teacher, v51 n4 p229-230 Apr 2013
Suppose a block of mass "m"[subscript 1] traveling at speed "v"[subscript 1] makes a one-dimensional perfectly inelastic collision with another block of mass "m"[subscript 2]. What else does one need to know to calculate the fraction of the mechanical energy that is dissipated in the collision? (Contains 1 figure.)
