# Loss of kinetic energy in perfect inelastic collision

In perfectly inelastic collision, the loss in kinetic energy during collision is transformed to another form of energy like sound, thermal, heat, light etc.

Loss of kinetic energy in perfect inelastic collision

In perfectly inelastic collision, the loss in kinetic energy during collision is transformed to another form of energy like sound, thermal, heat, light etc. Let KEi be the total kinetic energy before collision and KEf be the total kinetic energy after collision.

Total kinetic energy before collision, Total kinetic energy after collision, Then the loss of kinetic energy is Loss of KEQ = KE i  KEf Substituting equation (4.63) in equation (4.66), and on simplifying (expand v by using the algebra (a+b) 2 = a2+b2+2ab, we get Study Material, Lecturing Notes, Assignment, Reference, Wiki description explanation, brief detail
