coefficient of restitution problem'A small smooth sphere moves on a horizontal table and strikes an identical sphere lying at rest on the table at a distance d from a vertical wall, the impact being along the line of centres and perpendicular to the wall. Prove that the next impact between the spheres will take place at a distance #2 20121107 03:44:00
Re: coefficient of restitution problemhi jimi70 and after the wall impact Express all in terms of u_a Let D be the distance from the wall for second impact Back later when I've found some more paper to work this out. A LITTLE LATER: Curious. I'm getting which agrees with your numeric version.
