Homework Help: Momentum help

  1. Jan 13, 2010 #1
    the question is discuss how you results would change if th balll had bounced off the floor instead of sticked to it. I was having to measure the change in the radius (delta x).

    So I was thinking about this and I was wondering if there might be a larger difference between initial and final thickness because instead of the ball bouncing back up, which dicreases the amount of impact (?) it would just go splat, this would also change the delta x

    Is this a possible thing that would change my delta x to be different than when it bounced?
