If a skater of weight 3 kg has initial speed 32 m/s and second one of weight 4 kg has 5 m/s. After collision, they have speed (couple)  5 m/s. Then the loss in K.E. is

48 J
96 J
None of these

detailed solution

Correct option is D

Loss in K.E. = (initial K.E. – Final K.E.) of system 12m1u12+12m2u22−12(m1+m2)V2 =123×(32)2+12×4×(5)2−12×(3+4)×(5)2= 1498.5 J
