Relativistic and Classical Particle Collision Comparison JS Model
written by Kostas Papamichalis
The Relativistic and Classical Particle Collision Comparison JS Model shows a two-particles collision, according to two models: a) a relativistic model and b) a Newtonian model. The primary objective is to signify and compare the predictions of the two theories on the particular phenomenon.

The system is composed of two classical particles P1 and P2. P2 at rest at the origin O of the LS. P1 is moving toward P2 with velocity v0 along the x-axis. The initial conditions of the system and the parameters determining the interaction machinery between the particles are identical in the two models. The particles are distinct: they preserve their masses before and after the interaction. The collision is elastic: the total momentum and energy are kept invariant.
