Homework Help: Impact of a bouncing ball

  1. Mar 17, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Determine the initial velocity with which a soccer player must kick the ball, such that the ball bounces and then achieves maximum height of 2.20 m at point C or just passing under the horizontal bar. Coefficient of restitution between the ball and the field is e=0.5.

    2. Relevant equations

    h = 2.20 m

    e = 0.5; 0.5 = (vB)2-(vA)2 / (vA)1-(vB)1

    T0+V0 = T1 + V1

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I believe I have the correct equations that I will need to use. I'm also thinking that I may need to use some kinematic equations for projectile motion as well. But as of now, I'm not sure where or how to start.
