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 ?...
