Elastic & Inelastic Collisions

This simulation can be used on computers or tablets. It simulates the collision between two boxes sliding on a frictionless surface. The elasticity of the collision can be set anywhere from zero (totally inelastic - the objects stick together) to one (totally elastic collision - no kinetic energy is lost).
