Unformatted text preview: by 1 2 m t v 2 t + 1 2 m b v 2 b is conserved (i.e. is the same before and after the collision) -we will cover this later in the semester. What is the maximum height reached by the tennis ball? (b) Now consider a stack of n balls, having masses m 1 m 2 m 3 ... m n The bottom of ball 1 starts a height h from the ground, and the bottom of ball n is a distance h + d from the ground. Again, assume the balls are separated by negligible distances and bounce instantaneously and elastically. What is the maximum height reached by ball n ?...
