The loss of kinetic energy during inelastic impact, is given by (where m1 = Mass of the first body, m2 = Mass of the second body, and u1 and u2 = Velocities of the first and second bodies respectively.)

A. [m₁ m₂/2(m₁ + m₂)] (u₁ - u₂)²

B. [2(m₁ + m₂)/m₁ m₂] (u₁ - u₂)²

C. [m₁ m₂/2(m₁ + m₂)] (u₁² - u₂²)

D. [2(m₁ + m₂)/m₁ m₂] (u₁² - u₂²)
