Even if there is,doesn't that depend on the objects...

I have given a unique situation so the prediction will also be unique.Isn't that right?

When two rubber balls collide for example, some of the kinetic energy is lost when the balls are deformed, which converts some of the kinetic energy to internal thermal energy, where the interiors of the balls are heated by the collision.

I suggest reading this article:

Collision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You will find other links to follow for further information.
