Project Description


In an inelastic collision, total momentum is conserved, but total mechanical energy is not. Because of

this loss of total mechanical energy, the magnitudes of the velocities after the collision are also smaller

than those before the collision. For an object participating in the collision, the ratio of its final speed to

its initial speed depends on multiple factors, like the material it is made of, the material characteristics

of the objects it collided with, and the initial speeds of all objects involved in the collision.

In this experiment, you will measure the speeds before and after colliding with the floor for different balls. You will then determine their coefficients of restitution,

e =v2/v1=h2/h1


where v2 is the rebound speed, v1 is the speed just before impact. As shown in the equation, e can also

be written in terms of the square root of the ratio of maximum heights reached, h1 before the collision,

and h2 after the collision, if we assume that air resistance is negligible.

Plot the graph of Position vs. time, Velocity vs. time, Acceleration vs. time and Vertical force

vs. time .

Plot the graph of. kinetic energy vs. time, potential energy vs. time

Determine the coefficient of restitution of the ball, as well as the impulse it delivered.

Repeat the experiment with different of balls.(Basketball,Soccerball and Tennis ball used)
