The NCAA requires that a basketball dropped from a height of 1.83 m (measured to the bottom
of the ball) bounce to a height of 1.24 to 1.37 m (measured to the top of the ball). Assuming the
diameter of a typical basketball is 0.25 m, calculate the allowable range of coefficients of
restitution between the basketball and the gym floor.
