In the figure shown, a ball of mass m collides perpendicularly on a smooth stationary wedge of mass M, kept on a smooth horizontal plane. If the coefficient of restitution of collision is e, then determine the velocity of the wedge after collision.
can we conserve momentum when the collision is partially elastic ?
The Attempt at a Solution
i wrote→ mV°sinθ= MV + meV°sinθ
is this right??
