B Angular Velocity in Linear Momentum Equation

  1. Sep 24, 2016 #1
    m1v1 = m2v2
    v = rω
    m1(rω)1 = m2(rω)2
    m1ω1 = m2ω2
    Does this make sense?

    For which scenario?

    For Newton's Cradle
    because the pendulum in Newton's cradle swings down to collide and transfer momentum to the ball on the other end.
