For an elastic collision, both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. m1 = mass of colliding ball m2 = mass of ball initially at rest v1i = initial speed of colliding ball v1f = final speed of colliding ball v2i = initial speed of at rest ball = 0 v2f = final speed of at ...

A billiard ball of mass 0.16 kg has a speed of 1.80 m/s and collides with the side of the billiard table at an angle of 34.6°. For this collision, the coefficient of restitution is 0.841. What is the angle relative to the side (in degrees) at which the ball moves away from the...

A uniform, spherical bowling ball of mass m and radius R is projected horizontally along the ﬂoor at an initial velocity v0 = 6.00 m/s. The ball is not rotating initially, so ω0 = 0. It picks up rotation due to (kinetic) friction as it initially slips along the &#...

A bowling ball encounters a 0.76 m vertical rise on the way back to the ball rack, as the drawing illustrates. Ignore frictional losses and assume that the mass of the ball is distributed uniformly. If the translational speed of the ball is 5.40 m/s at the bottom of the rise, ...

High-speed stroboscopic photographs show that the head of a golf club of mass 200 g is traveling at 55.0 m/s just before it strikes a 46.0-g golf ball at rest on a tee. After the collision, the club head travels (in the same direction) at 40.0 m/s. Find the speed of the golf ...
