Calculating Elasticity?

  1. Mar 4, 2004 #1

    I am interested in knowing how to calculate the elasticity between two objects when colliding. Let’s say I have object A and B with different “elasticises” constants. Do I then simply combine their values by adding them together and divide by two?

    EDIT: Assuming that the objects’ elasticises depend on one another. Which I would also like to know if its correct. Thanks in advance :)
