A particle moving with kinetic energy = 3 joule makes an elastic head on collision with a stationary particle which has twice its mass during the impact.

  • (A):The minimum kinetic energy of the system is 1 joule.
  • (B):The maximum elastic potential energy of the system is 2 joule.
  • (C):Momentum and total kinetic energy of the system are conserved at every instant.
  • (D):The ratio of kinetic energy to potential energy of the system first decreases and then increases.

Best Answer

Correct Answer:

(A): The minimum kinetic energy of the system is 1 joule.
