Collision FAQs:


Q: Is collision an event in which two or more bodies exert forces on each other for a relatively short time?

A: Yes.

Q: Is collision one in which part of the kinetic energy is changed to some other form of energy in the collision?

A: Yes.

Q: Are collisions determining whether two objects have in fact collided?

A: Yes.

Q: Are collisions of three types?

A: Yes.

Q: Is collision zero?

A: Yes.

Q: Is collision that of the particle with the smaller mass?

A: Yes.

Q: Are collisions inelastic?

A: Yes, as kinetic energy is not conserved.

Q: Are collisions whether they also conserve kinetic energy?

A: Yes.

Q: Is collision elastic or inelastic is quantified by the coefficient of restitution?

A: Yes, and a value that generally ranges between zero and one.

Q: Is collision defined as one in which there is no loss of kinetic energy in the collision?

A: Yes.

Q: Is collision short-duration interaction between two bodies or more than two bodies simultaneously causing change in motion of bodies involved due to internal forces acted between them during this?

A: Yes.

Q: Is collision sometimes also called a plastic collision?

A: Yes.
