Dear vipin

doing conservation of momentum

new  v = 0.5*2/1+0.5

 = 1/1.5 =2/3

energy loss = k.e final-k.e initila

= 0.5(1.5*(0.66*0.66) - 0.5*2*2)

= -0.6666

therefore energyloss = 0.6666n-m

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.we will get you the answer and detailed  solution very  quickly.

All the best.

Dear Vipin,

We know that momentum should be conserved

gives 0.5*2 = (1+0.5)*v

where v i the velocity of entire mass system moving after collision...

v=(1/1.5) m/s

energy lost = kinetic energy of the system before collision - kinetic energy of the system aftr collision

                 = 1/2*0.5*22 -1/2* 1.5 *(1/1.5)2

                 =0.6667 Joules

All the best for IITJEE preparation,


With Regards,
