Questions

Two equal masses m_{1} and m_{2} moving along the same straight line with velocities + 3 m/s and – 5 m/s respectively collide elastically. Their velocities after the collision will be respectively

a

+ 4 m/s for both

b

– 3 m/s and +5 m/s

c

– 4 m/s and + 4 m/s

d

– 5 m/s and + 3 m/s

detailed solution

Correct option is D

As m1=m2 therefore after elastic collision velocities of masses get interchanged i.e. velocity of mass m1=−5 m/sand velocity of mass m2=+3 m/s
