Correct Answer - Option 1 : 0

CONCEPT:

  • Perfectly elastic collision: A perfectly elastic collision is defined as one in which there is no loss of kinetic energy and momentum of the system is conserved  in the collision.
  • Inelastic collision: A inelastic collision is defined as one in which there is a loss of kinetic energy and momentum of the system is conserved in the collision.
  • Coefficient of restitution is the ratio of relative velocity after impact to the relative velocity before impact. 

Coefficient of restitution (e)

\({\rm{e}} = \frac{{{\rm{Relative\;velocity\;after\;collision}}}}{{{\rm{Relative\;velocity\;before\;collision}}}} = \frac{{{{\rm{v}}_2} - {{\rm{v}}_1}}}{{{{\rm{u}}_1} - {{\rm{u}}_2}}}\)

  • For perfectly elastic collision, e = 1
  • For inelastic collision, e < 1
  • For a perfectly inelastic collision,e = 0


EXPLANATION:

As from the above discussion, we can say

  • The coefficient of restitution for perfectly inelastic bodies is: e = 0

​So option 1 is correct.
