Bouncing Balls

Some balls bounce better than others.

A particular ball can be characterized by its

The ratio of its rebound speed Vf to its collision speedViScientists have found that, for most balls, this speed ratioThe amount of kinetic energy transformed at impact is calledThis java applet shows you the effects due to

1. You can enter different value of coefficient of restitution as(Vo/Vi).
