Consider the following two statements : A Linear momentum of a system of particles is zero B. Kinetic energy of a system of particles is zero.Then
Kinetic energy of a system of particle is zero only when the speed of each particles is zero. And if speed of each particle is zero, the linear momentum of the system of particle has to be zero.
Also the linear momentum of the system may be zero even when the particles are moving. This is because linear momentum is a vector quantity. In this case the kinetic energy of the system of particles will not be zero.
∴ A does not imply B but B implies A.

A small block of mass M moves on a frictionless surface of an inclined plane, as shown in figure. The angle of the incline suddenly changes from 60° to 30° at point B. The block is initially at rest at A. Assume that collisions between the block and the incline are totally inelastic (g = 10 m/s^{2}).
Q.3. If collision between the block and the incline is completely elastic, then the vertical (upward) component of the velocity of the block at point B, immediately after it strikes the second incline is –
The velocity of the block along BC just before collision is v cos 30°. The impact forces act perpendicular to the surface so the component of velocity along the incline remains unchanged.
Also since the collision is elastic, the vertical component of velocity (v sin 30°) before collision changes in direction, the magnitude remaining the same as shown in the figure. So the rectangular components of velocity after collision are as shown in the figure.
This means that the final velocity of the block should be horizontal making an angle 30º with BC. Therefore the vertical component of the final velocity of the block is zero.
