The One Dimensional Collision model allows the user to collide two objects and investigate whether momentum and/or kinetic energy are conserved in the collision process. To keep things simple, we'll confine ourselves to collisions along a single line. Special cases include the completely inelastic case, in which the objects stick together after the collision, as well as the completely elastic case, in which kinetic energy is conserved.
The One Dimensional Collision was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_bu_Collisions1D.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Ejs open source java applet 1D collision carts Elastic and Inelastic Collision. This is independently created lookang using Ejs, a virtual laboratory simulation for One Dimension collision of two carts allowing inquiry learning for elastic and inelastic studies. This applet has been been used in schools in singapore and has been refined since 2008
