-There are 2 particles moving towards each other.

-Both particles have same mass and velocity.

What will be the result of the inelastic collision?

a) Both particles will come to a stop and no longer move.

b) They will move to the opposite of their original direction with no change in velocity.

I haven't done the math yet but my intuition tells me from the waves behave is that both velocity vectors would cancel each other. But from my knowledge of inelastic condition tells me that their velocity vectors will exchange.
