This physics video tutorial Explains how to solve inelastic collision problems in one dimension using the law of conservation of linear momentum. In an inelastic collision, momentum is conserved but kinetic energy is not conserved. This video explains how to calculate the final speed of two objects sticking together and how to calculate the final speed of a bullet embedded in a wooden block as well as the maximum height attained by the bullet-block system. You need to use the law of conservation of energy to solve the 2nd part of the second problem where kinetic energy is converted to potential energy.

Amazing, Life Changing Tutor

Before I met Jonathan, I was struggling through most of my STEM classes because I was simply not studying properly. He taught me all kinds of new study habits that would help me to save time, raise my grades, and lower my stress. Jonathan was specifically tutoring me in vector calculus and is an amazing tutor on the subject. You will walk away from a lesson with a game plan knowing exactly what you need to do before your next session with him or before your next exam in order to do well in the course. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
