A metal ball of mass 2 kg moving with a velocity of 36 km/h has an head on collision with a stationary ball of mass 3 kg. If after the collision, the two balls move together, the loss in kinetic energy due to collision is

40 J
60 J
100 J
140 J

detailed solution

Correct option is B

v=36 km​/​h=10 m​/​s By law of conservation of momentum2×10=(2+3) V⇒V=4 m​/​sLoss in K.E. =12×2×(10)2−12×5×(4)2=60 J
