Where does momentum go in an inelastic collision?

Asked by Layton Bonilla

Inelastic Collision

When a collision occurs in an isolated system, the total momentum of the system of objects is conserved. Provided that there are no net external forces acting upon the objects, the momentum of all objects before the collision equals the momentum of all objects after the collision.
