**NONElastic Collision**

## Homework Statement

One sphere collides with other sphere that has speed of u2 = 0... Both spheres have same mass (m1 = m2 = 0.3 kg)... After collision first sphere has speed of v1 = 0.6 m/s, second sphere v2 = 1.1 m/s ... How much of kinetic energy has been transformed into heat

## Homework Equations

Ek= (m1 * u1 ^2) / 2

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2

## The Attempt at a Solution

from second formula i got u1 = 1.7 m/s

and after doing Ek = Ek1 + Ek2 + heat,

heat = Ek - Ek1 + Ek2

heat = 0.2 J

Can anybody confirm this...7
