Elastic Collisions

Key Stage 4 Science / Physics

Sample Question

Consider two objects with equal masses m1 = m2 = 10 kg that are moving toward each other with velocities of v1 = 40 m/sec right and v2 = -10 m/sec, or 10m/s left. What is the velocity of the second mass (B) if the first mass (A) acquires a velocity of 10 m/sec after the collision?


  • 20 m/sec right
  • 10 m/sec left
  • 0 m/sec
  • 10 m/sec right
  • 20 m/sec left
