Solution

## The correct option is A 9:4Given: ma=10 kg,ua=6 m/s mb=50 kg,ub=0 m/s Let velocity of ma is va after elastic collision. ⇒va=(ma−mbma+mb)ua+2mbubma+mb =(10−5010+50)6+2×50×010+50 =−4 m/s The ratio of initial and final kinetic energies of block A is given by, K.EiK.Ef=12mu2a12mv2a=12m×6212m×(−4)2=3616=94 Hence the correct option is (a).
