Two identical ball bearings in contact with each other and resting on a frictionless table are hit head-on by another ball bearing of the same mass moving initially with a speedÂ *V*. If the collision is elastic, which of the following figure is a possible result after collision?Â

The total momentum before and after a collision in each case is constant.

For an elastic collision,

Total kinetic energy of a system remains conserved before and after the collision.Â

For mass of each ball bearingÂ

Total kinetic energy of the system before collision,Â

=

=

Total kinetic energy of the system after collision,Â

= Â

=Â

Hence, the kinetic energy of the system is not conserved in case (i).

CaseÂ (ii)

Total kinetic energy of the system after collision,Â

=x(2

= Â

Hence, the kinetic energy of the system is conserved in case (ii).Â

CaseÂ (iii)

Total kinetic energy of the system after collision,Â

= ()(3

= ()

Hence, the kinetic energy of the system is not conserved in case (iii).Â

Hence, Case II is the only possibility.

Is work a scalar or a vector quantity?

Work is dot product of two vectors. i.e.Â .

And dot product is a scalar quantity. Therefore, work is a scalar quantity.Â
