A ball falls on an inclined plane of inclination theta from a
height h above the point of impact and makes a perfectly
elastic collision. Where will it hit the plane again ?
Solve the previous problem if the coefficient of restitution
is e. Use theta = 45°, e = .75 and h = 5 m.
The Attempt at a Solution
I was able to solve first part of the problem and got the distance along the incline to be =8hsinθ. For second part I am getting angle of reflection of ball with normal to be 53 degree but the value in my text is 37degree. but I dont think the angle should be less than theta
