# Problem: How can momentum but not energy be conserved in an inelastic collision?

###### FREE Expert Solution

A collision whereby the momentum is conserved while the kinetic energy is not conserved is called an inelastic collision.

Conservation of momentum is governed by the law of conservation of momentum.

Conservation of energy is governed by the law of conservation of energy.
