    This is the Puzzle

    Hold a basketball in one hand, chest high. Hold a baseball in the other hand about two inches above the basketball. Drop them simultaneously onto a hard floor. The basketball will rebound and collide with the baseball above it. Estimate the rebound speed of the baseball? Assume that the basketball is three to four times heavier than the baseball.
    The result will surprise you. Don't do this in the house!
