COLLISIONS

Synopsis:

1. Collision is an interaction between two or more bodies in which sudden changes of momenta

take place. e.g. : Striking a ball with a bat.

2. Newton’s third law of motion leads to the law of conservation of momentum (momentum can

neither be created nor destroyed).

3. The momentum of a system m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 remains constant so long as no external

forces act on it.

4. Rocket, jet plane, etc. work on the law of conservation of linear momentum.

5. When a bullet of mass m is fired from a gun of mass M with a velocity v, then the gun recoils

with a velocity mv/M.

6. When a shot is fired from a gun, the momentum of the shot and the momentum of the gun are

equal in magnitude but opposite in direction.

7. K.E. of gun : K.E. of bullet = mass of bullet : mass of gun. The velocity of a bullet is

determined by ballistic pendulum.

8. When a shot of mass m with a velocity v gets embedded in a block of mass M free to move on

a smooth horizontal surface, then their common velocity = mv/(m+M).

9. A bullet of mass m moving with a velocity v strikes a block of mass M hanging vertically.

After striking, the bullet gets embedded in the block and both rise to a height ‘h’. Then the

velocity of the bullet is given by the formula v = ⎛⎜ m + M ⎞⎟ 2gh .

⎝ m ⎠

10. If a boy of mass ‘m’ walks a distance ‘s’ on a stationary boat of mass ‘M’, then the boat moves

back through a distance of ms .

M+m

11. When a moving shell explodes, its total (vector sum) momentum remains constant but its total

kinetic energy increases.

12. If the velocities of colliding bodies before and after infact are confined to a straight line, it is

called head on collision or one dimensional collision.

13. Elastic collisions :

1. Both kinetic energy and linear momentum are

conserved.

2. Total energy is constant.

3. Bodies will not be deformed.

4. The temperature of the system does not change.

e.g. Collisions between ivory balls;

molecular, atomic and nuclear collisions.

14. Perfect elastic collisions :

1. Two bodies of equal masses suffering one dimensional elastic collision, exchange their

velocities after collision. i.e., if m1 = m2 then v1 = u2 and v2 = u1.

2. If a body suffers an elastic collision with another body of the same mass at rest, the first is

stopped dead, whereas the second moves with the velocity of the first. i.e, if m1 = m2 and u2

= 0 then v1 = 0; v2 = u1.

3. When a very light body strikes another very massive one at rest, the velocity of the lighter

body is almost reversed and the massive body remains at rest. i.e., if m2 >> m1 and u2 = 0, then

v1 = − u1 and v2 = 0.

4. When a massive body strikes a lighter one at rest, the velocity of the massive body remains

practically unaffected where as the lighter one begins to move with a velocity nearly double

as much as that of the massive one. i.e., if m1 >> m2 and u2 = 0, then v1 = u1 and v2 = 2u1.

5. When m1, m2 are moving with velocities u1, u2 and v1, v2 before and after collisions, then

15. Two bodies of equal masses moving in opposite directions with the same speed collide, if the

collision is elastic, each body rebounds with the same speed.

16. A body collides with another body of equal mass at rest. The collision is oblique and perfectly

elastic. The two bodies move at right angles after collision.

17. A body of mass m1 collides head on with another body of mass m2 at rest. The collision is

perfectly elastic. Then

18. The loss of energy of the first body is maximum 100% when m1 = m2.

19. Inelastic collision :

1. Linear momentum is conserved.

2. Kinetic energy is not conserved.

3. Total energy is conserved.

4. Temperature changes.

5. The bodies may be deformed.

6. The bodies may stick together and move with

a common velocity after collision

7. If the bodies collide and move together after

collision; the collision is perfectly inelastic.

8. Two bodies collide in one dimension. The collision is perfectly inelastic, then

m1u1 + m2u2 = (m1 + m2) V

20. Ballistic Pendulum: A block of mass M is suspended by a light string. A bullet of mass m

moving horizontally with a velocity 'v' strikes the block and gets embedded in it. The block and

the bullet rise to a height h. Then

24. Fraction of the kinetic energy lost in the impact of a ballistic pendulum is

25. Coefficient of restitution (e) : The coefficient of restitution between two bodies in a collision

is defined as the ratio of the relative velocity of separation after collision to the relative velocity

of their approach before their collision.

(i) e = relative velocity of separation

relative velocity of approach

v 2 − v1

(ii)e = −

u 2 − u1

v 2 − v1

(iii) e=

u1 − u 2

Eg : The value of e is 0.94 for two glass balls,

0.2 for two lead balls.

(v) for a perfectly inelastic collision, e = 0

(vi) If a body falls from a height h1 on to a hard floor and rebounds to a height h2, then

e= .

26. The value of coefficient of restitution is independent of the masses and the velocities of the

colliding bodies. It depends on their materials.

27. If a body dropped from a certain height takes a time t1 to strike the ground and time t2 to rise

30. A ball is projected with velocity ‘u’ at an angle ‘θ’ to the horizontal plane. It will keep
