So yeah, I just wanna get some things cleared up... with collision equations...

OK SO..

QUESTION:

which equations go with which situations?

+++++++++++++

Elastic collision:

----------------

1] V

2] V

1] and 2] are for ones where one object is stationary

m

++++++++++++++

Inelastic Collision:

-----------------

m

+++++++++++++++++

complete Inelastic Collisions:

----------------------------

m

just want to get them straighten out for the test tomorrow ^^ and If i'm missing any... can you let me know thanks in advanced!

Elastic collision:

----------------

1] V

_{1}' = V_{1}( m_{1}- m_{2}) / (m_{1}+ m_{2})2] V

_{2}' = 2m_{1}v_{1}/ (m_{1}+ m_{2})1] and 2] are for ones where one object is stationary

m

_{1}v_{1}+ m_{2}v_{2}= m_{1}v_{1}' + m_{2}v_{2}'++++++++++++++

Inelastic Collision:

-----------------

m

_{1}v_{1}+ m_{2}v_{2}= m_{1}v_{1}' + m_{2}v_{2}l+++++++++++++++++
