Find the value of H in terms of v_0 and g so that at the instant when the balls collide, the first ball is at the highest point of its motion.

**bobpursley**, Friday, May 28, 2010 at 3:14pmThe highest point is when vertical velocity is zero.

Vf^2=Vi^2+2gh

h= vi^2/2g= Vi^2/19.8

Now, you need for the top ball to fall H-h in the same time.

time= distance/avgvelocityfor the bottom ball

= Vi^2/2g*Vi/2= Vi/g

now to the top:

H-h=1/2 g t^2= 1/2 g (Vi^2/g^2)=1/2 Vi/g

Now solve for H.

check all that.
