Coefficient of Restitution – definition, formula, numerical

In this post, we will cover the definition and formula of the coefficient of restitution. We will also see how types of collision can be determined from the value of the coefficient of restitution. We will also solve a numerical problem using the formula of the coefficient of restitution. What is the Coefficient of Restitution? […]

3 Types of collisions & their basic differences

In this post, we will list down the differences among the 3 primary types of collisions, elastic, inelastic & perfectly inelastic collisions. Among these types of collisions, elastic and perfectly inelastic collisions are limiting cases; most collisions actually fall into a category between these two extremes. In this third category of collisions, called inelastic collisions, […]
