This inelastic collision calculator will help you determine the final velocity and kinetic energy of two objects after they collide and stick together.

## Inelastic Collision Calculator

This calculator determines the final velocity after an inelastic collision between two objects assuming a perfectly inelastic collision where both objects stick together after the collision.

### How to Use the Inelastic Collision Calculator

Enter the mass and velocity of two objects involved in an inelastic collision. Press the “Calculate” button, and the calculator will display the final velocity of the combined mass after the collision.

### How it Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the formula derived from the principle of conservation of momentum for an inelastic collision:

*finalVelocity = (mass1 * velocity1 + mass2 * velocity2) / (mass1 + mass2)*

### Limitations

This calculator assumes a perfectly inelastic collision where the objects stick together after collision. It does not account for external forces, energy loss, or any deformation caused during the collision. The inputs must be numerical values, and the result is an approximation of the final velocity.
