Intial speed and final speed

  1. Nov 22, 2009 #1
    im having trouble find out when exactly is the intial speed and final speed when dealing with momentum....for example: i bounce ball....im using the conservation momentum equation and understanding what the initial and final is making me confused...

    Please provide a specific example so you can point out exactly where the trouble is. (It's not clear to me why you'd apply conservation of momentum to a bounced ball.)
