How do central impacts work?


When two objects collide, the resulting behavior depends on the relative masses of the two objects and upon how “springy” the impact is. In this quiz, you are asked to determine these parameters based on the dynamic behavior. Before taking the quiz, you may want to look at some very similar example problems.
