The best annotation for this article will be its first paragraph.

“Absolutely elastic collision is the collision model where the total kinetic energy of the system is preserved. Since the deformations of the bodies are neglected, it is considered that energy is not lost on deformation, and that the interaction is immediately distributed over the entire body. The example of the collision of billiard balls is often drawn to illustrate the case of absolutely elastic collision. However, is the deformation of the balls during their collision, in fact, that negligible, and is the time of their interaction, in fact, that short?”

  1. An elastic collision is an encounter between two bodies in which the total kinetic energy of the two bodies after the encounter is equal to their total kinetic energy before the encounter. in game of billiards the collision of balls are example of elastic collision.
