(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I’m bouncing a ball from a number of different heights, and measure how high they bounce back, i believe using the equations below... well kinda.

2. Relevant equations

Ball Falling

Ball at highest height = mgh

Drop = h

When ball hits the bottom= 1/2mv²

Speed of falling ball= v¹

Ball bouncing back up

Ball at highest height = mgh¹

height bounced = h¹

Ball at highest point bounced = 1/2mv²

Speed bounced back = v¹

3. The attempt at a solution

I believe this is the maths i need, but have no idea of how to perform the conclusion, with all the heights from the bounced ball I’m going to plot them against a chart and then heat them to certain temperatures to see if there is a pattern.

If anyone could help or lead me in the right direction it would be much appreciated, as im very confused.

Thanks, Confuzzled
