Give equation change of kinetic energy in collision :

Q = 1/2 μ v^{2}(1-e^{2})

Proof that for both energy kinetic of particle is loss after the collision?

2. Relevant equations

e = (V_{2 finish}- V_{1 finish}) / (V_{1 initial}- V_{2 initial})

μ = reduced mass = (m1.m2) / (m1+m2)

v = v_{1inital}- v_{2initial}

3. The attempt at a solution

k_{1init}= ...

k_{2init}= ...

k_{1finish}= ...

k_{2finish}= ...
