Collision in 2D: Momentum & Ramp Effect

  • #1

Homework Statement

Hi, new here. I am in regular physics and my teacher gave this crazy problem dealing with momentum. There is a ramp and one ball hits another ball that's not moving. My question is what would happen if the ball getting hit was higher or lower than the ball coming down the ramp?

Homework Equations

P = mv Consevationof momentum

The Attempt at a Solution

I think that since the ball is not getting hit straight on, there would some components to resolve but wasn't sure how to find answer.

Please state the problem exactly as given.

Yes, you should give the exact question. The assumptions stated are neceessary for solving the question.

From your title, I take it that the balls do not lie and move on the greatest slope of the ramp?
