Given below are two statements :


Given below are two statements : one is labelled as Assertion A and the other is labelled as Reason R.

Assertion A : Body 'P' having mass M moving with speed 'u' has head-on collision elastically with another body ' $Q$ ' having mass ' $m$ ' initially at rest. If $\$ m<$ Reason $R$ : During elastic collision, the momentum and kinetic energy are both conserved. In the light of the above statements, choose the most appropriate answer from the options given below:

  1. (1) $\mathrm{A}$ is correct but $\mathrm{R}$ is not correct.

  2. (2) Both $\mathrm{A}$ and $\mathrm{R}$ are correct but $\mathrm{R}$ is NOT the correct explanation of $\mathrm{A}$.

  3. (3) $\mathrm{A}$ is not correct but $\mathrm{R}$ is correct.

  4. (4) Both $\mathrm{A}$ and $\mathrm{R}$ are correct and $\mathrm{R}$ is the correct explanation of $\mathrm{A}$.

Correct Option: 4,





For elastic collision $\rightarrow \mathrm{e}=1$



$v_{2}=2 u$

In elastic collision kinetic energy \& momentum are conserved.
