An Easy Way to One-Dimensional Elastic Collisions
Sztrajman, Jorge; Sztrajman, Alejandro
Physics Teacher, v55 n3 p164-165 Mar 2017
The aim of this paper is to propose a method for solving head-on elastic collisions, without algebraic complications, to emphasize the use of the fundamental conservations laws. Head-on elastic collisions are treated in many physics textbooks as examples of conservation of momentum and kinetic energy.
