Homework Help: Physics

Two balls are connected by a string that stretches over a massless, frictionless pulley. Ball 1 has a mass of 0.45 kg and is held 0.74 m above the ground. Ball 2 has a mass of 5.7 kg and is held 0.88 m above the ground. When the balls are released, ball 2 falls to the ground, looses 30 % of its kinetic energy and rebounds to some maximum rebound height. When the balls are released, ball 1 travels to some maximum height before starting to fall. Assume that ball 1 reaches its maximum height during ball 2's rebound so that the string doesn't pull.
Calculate the maximum height of ball 1 from and ground and the rebound height of ball 2.
