```Coefficient of Restitution: Tennis Ball
Today’s Topics:
 Coefficient of Restitution
 2D collisions
A regulation tennis ball has to bounce between a height of 53 to 56
inches when dropped from a height of 100 inches onto a concrete
floor. Determine the coefficient of restitution.

Example: Shooting Pool I
Example: Shooting Pool I
The cue ball A is given an initial speed
of 5 m/s. It makes direct perfectly
elastic impact with ball B, giving ball B a
speed of 5 m/s. Ball B then makes
contact with cushion C (e = 0.6). Each
ball has a mass of 0.4 kg. Neglect
friction and the size of each ball.
e=0.6
Determine the speed of ball B and the
angle θ after ball B hits cushion C.
If e=1, will θ be:
A. >30°
B. =30°
C. <30°
