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? […]
Numerical problems on collisions of objects in two dimensions. We will solve the collision problems using axial-vector components and the law of conservation of momentum.
This post covers how Collisions and Newton’s Laws of Motion are related. As collisions, we can take examples of the interaction between two bodies (gun-bullet, skater-skateboard, hose-water). For simplicity let us consider a simple collision between two balls and find out how Newton’s Laws of Motion can be applied to analyze the events related to […]
Here is a numerical worksheet based on the Collision topic in physics that includes problems related to elastic and inelastic collisions.
