Bouncing ball and Matlab

  1. Jun 20, 2004 #1

    I'm new to Matlab and I'm working on a bouncing ball project modeled
    as a mass-spring-damper. The ball bounces on and off of the spring-damper until it's all damped out.

    I'm having trouble finding multiple solutions to an expression with
    the solve command. I'd would like to know all the solutions within a
    range instead of just the first one. I don't know if finding multiple
    intercepts is possible or not. I'm not look for zeros.

    I've been at this for hours and hours. If anyone has tips I would appreciate it.
