Altemately, the launch speed V0 of the steelball can be determined from the kinematic equations for projectile motion.

In Exercises 2 — 6 conservation of the mechanical energy of the ball and block after the collision and conservation of linear momentum of the ball and block during the collision are used to calculate the speed of the ball immediately before the collision with the block, while in Exercises 8 and 9 the kinematic equations for projectile motion are used to calculate the launch speed.
