ok so I really don't get 2d collisions and I thought I knew how to do this one but I have no idea:
A 104 kg baseball player jumps up verticlly to catch a baseball of mass .254 kg traveling horizontally with a speed of 28.6 m/s. If the vertical speed of the player is .258 m/s the instant he catches the ball, detemine him speed just after the catch.
please help or let me know how on Earth I would solve this!
