Homework Statement
A ball of mass ##m## is attached to a massless string of length ##L##. The ball is released from rest as shown in the figure and as it reaches the bottom of the circle, the string wraps around a nail which is a distance ##d## below the center of the circle. What is the velocity of the ball after the collision?
Homework Equations
The velocity before the collision is ##v=\sqrt{2gL}## from energy conservation.
From angular momentum conservation around the nail ##(Ld)mv=(Ld)mv_{f}##.
The Attempt at a Solution
So the velocity after the collision is the same as before the collision. Is this right?
