Three identical particles are located at the vertices of an equilateral triangle. Each particle moves along a meridian with equal speed towards the centroid and collides in elastically, then can anything be said about the outcome .? and if not then why .?

        Nothing can be said about the outcome becoz the collision is inelastic not perfectly inelastic morever we cannot say if the body might stop or continue in different direction as the only constraint is intial momentum is zero (noexternal force on system)so FINAL MOMENTUM SHULD ALSO BE ZERO.that can be done if body moves or not.
