What is the correct answer?


u1 and u2 are the velocities of approach of two moving bodies in the same direction and their corresponding velocities of separation are v1 and v2. As per Newton's law of collision of elastic bodies, the coefficient of restitution (e) is given by

A. e = v1 - v2/u2 - u1

B. e = u2 - u1/v1 - v2

C. e = v2 - v1/u1 - u2

D. e = v1 - v2/u2 + u1
