Why is there no loss of kinetic energy in elastic collision? During an elastic collision, the bodies are perfectly elastic and therefore the kinetic energy used in causing the deformation is recovered in the reformation stage completely with the complete reformation. As a result of collision, both the momentum and the kinetic energy are conserved.
Is kinetic energy only conserved in an elastic collision? Elastic collisions are collisions in which both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. The total system kinetic energy before the collision equals the total system kinetic energy after the collision. If total kinetic energy is not conserved, then the collision is referred to as an inelastic collision.
Why is kinetic energy not conserved in inelastic collisions? Kinetic energy is not conserved in an inelastic collision, but that is because it is converted to another form of energy (heat, etc.)
What does it mean when kinetic energy is conserved? When one says that “kinetic energy is conserved in an elastic collision” that means that the total kinetic energy of the system of particles involved in the collision doesn’t change.
