Two identical steel balls, each of mass 1.4 kg, are suspended from strings of length 36 cm so that they touch when in their equilibrium position. We pull one of the balls back until its string makes an angle q = 36° with the vertical and let it go. It collides elastically with the other ball. How high will the other ball rise? ok so what i am using is pi=pf and ei=ef first i calcuate the velocity of of th first ball when it is just about to hit the second which is mgh=1/2mv^2 (1.4)(9.8)36cos36=1/2(1.4)v^2 then v=23.89 so pi=pf of the system so m1v1+m2v2=m1v1f+m2v2f which is (1.4)(23.89)+0=0+1.4v2f so v2f=23.89 and if that is true, wouldn't ball 2 go as high as ball 1?
