In this episode, host Dianna Cowern tackles the difference between elastic and inelastic collisions. An elastic collision can be defined as a state where there is no net loss in kinetic energy in the system as the result of the collision. An inelastic collision can be defined as a type of collision where there is a loss of kinetic energy. Part of the "Physics 101" series.
