1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In an elastic collision of 2 objects, Kinetic energy is conserved. In an inelastic collision it is not. Where does the kinetic energy "go" in an inelastic collision ? 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution Ok i am not sure of the answer but is it supposed to be that the object with a higher velocity / mass transfers or merges its kinetic energy with the kinetic energy of the one that is lower thereby reducing it to zero.... Please help !!
