Answer to Question #42035 in Mechanics | Relativity for Neelima Borade
14. Two clay balls are moving toward each other along a common straight line. The one on the
left has mass 3 kg and velocity 4 m/s. The one on the left has mass 2 kg and velocity 9 m/s. The
balls collide and form a single ball of mass 5 kg and keep moving. Some kinetic energy is lost as
heat in this process. Calculate this lost energy.
