What Are Collisions Explain The Possible Types Of Collisions

Collisions are defined as intercommunications between two bodies, which occurs for a short interval and during which redistribution of momenta occurs by neglecting other forces’ effect.

There are two types of collisions

1. Elastic collision– The collision in which both momentum and kinetic energy are constant is called an elastic collision
2. Inelastic collision– The collision in which the only momentum remains constant but not kinetic energy is called Inelastic collision.
