Homework Help: Coefficient of restitution in rotation motion

  1. Dec 19, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Suppose A ball of mass m moving with a speed v collides with a rod of mass M and length L placed horizontally on a smooth floor. The coefficient of restitution is 0.5.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    In this case how do we utilise the information of COR.

    If it were given COR is 1 then we could conserve kinetic energy. But in this case how do we how about it?
