Intro Elastic collisions describe the collision of kinetic bodies in which momentum is conserved. The total kinetic energy before the collision is equal to the total kinetic energy after the collision. Likewise, the total momentum before the collision is equal to the total momentum after the collision. When two bodies collide, a small amount of energy is expended due to the deformation of the two bodies. If the collision is perfectly elastic, all energy expended in changing the shape the shape of the objects is recovered. In this experiment, we will explore the conversion of momentum and the conversion of kinetic energy in an elastic collision. We will observe a steel ball with a certain velocity colliding with another a second ball. Calculations
