Whats the equation for the coefficient of restitution again? Went blank!
Coefficient of Restitution = Speed of Separation = v[sub]1[/sub]-v[sub]2[/sub]
Speed of Approach u[sub]1[/sub]-u[sub]2[/sub]
For the simple case of something bouncing off the floor (or any immoveable object) the coefficient of restitution is:
c = vf/v0
where v0 is the speed of the object before the collision, and vf is the speed after the collision.
For perfectly elastic collisions, c = 1.
It's like waiting for a bus, you have to wait for ages and then two come along at once.
v1-v2/u1-u2, thats the one, thats guys!
