. Discuss the Classification of collisions


Best Answer

One-dimensional collision, Head on collision or Direct collision

Collision in which the particles move along the same straight line before and after the collision.

Two dimensional collision or Oblique collision

Collision in which the particle move in the same plane at different angles before and after collision

On the basis of conservation of kinetic energy

Elastic collision

Collision in which total K.E. before and after the collision remains the same.

In-elastic collision

Collision in which total K.E. before and after collision does not remain the same.

Perfectly inelastic collision

Collision in which particles get stick together after the collision. Loss of energy is maximum
