Perfectly elastic collisions are those in which no kinetic energy is lost in the collision. Macroscopic collisions are generally inelastic and do not conserve kinetic energy, though of course the ...
Java Applet simulating elastic and fully inelastic collisions - demonstrating the conservation of momentum.
This activity lets you deal with 2D elastic/inelastic collisions on a flat (or tilted) table and even use magnetic pucks! Subscription required but with 30 day free trial.
This site demonstrates two-dimensional collisions. Two balls of different masses can be shot at each other and the resulting collision and direction of the balls is shown
An animation which looks at the inelastic collision between two cars.
Elastic and inelastic collisions on a linear air track
Shows collision between two spheres. Set by user. Shown both in laboratory frame of reference and center of gravity frame of reference.
Short definitions relating to different types of collisions.
A clear brief explanation of deep inelastic scattering with diagrams.
An elastic collision is defined as one in which both conservation of momentum and conservation of kinetic energy are observed.
