Tennis Court Speed Measurement

  1. Feb 15, 2012 #1
    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone tell me what information I'd need to calculate the maximum and minimum bounce angle of a tennis ball being fired at a tennis court? The ball is being fired at 30 m/s at an angle of 16° and the coefficient of restitution of the tennis ball is 0.759. What other coefficients and other variables will need to be measured?

    This looks like a homework problem and should be posted in the homework subforum. (Even if it isn't actually homework it's still the same format) Head over there and post to ensure you get the best help possible!
