I was teaching a kid about Elastic Head on collision and he was having some trouble deriving few relations so I am doing this post to help him and others looking for similar content. $$\bigstar$$ There is a typographical mistake below in Eq.3. The correct equation should be $$\sf Va+{V_a}^{'}={V_b}^{'}$$ $$\bigstar$$ There is one another typographical mistake in the statement just below Eq.1. The correct statement should be: Also, in both elastic or inelastic collision momentum is conserved i.e. total initial momentum of the system is equal to the total final momentum of the system.
