A mass of 20 kg moving with a speed of 10m/s collides with another stationary mass of  5 kg. As a result of the collision, the two masses stick together. The kinetic energy of the composite mass will be

a
600 Joule
b
800 Joule
c
1000 Joule
d
1200 Joule

detailed solution

Correct option is B

m1v1+m2v2=(m1+m2)vsys. 20×10+5×0=(20+5) vsys.⇒vsys.=8 m​/​sK.E. of composite mass=12(20+5)×(8)2=800 J
