A small metal ball with a mass of m = 82.5 g is attached to a string of length l = 1.72 m. It is held at an angle of θ = 58.5° with respect to the vertical.
The ball is then released. When the rope is vertical, the ball collides head-on and perfectly elastically with an identical ball originally at rest. This second ball flies off with a horizontal initial velocity from a height of h = 2.92 m, and then later it hits the ground. At what distance x will the ball land?
Please help me. I have no idea how to do this!
