The ballistic pendulum and friction.

  1. May 11, 2007 #1
    in the ballistic pendulum. if the pendulum exerts a frictional force on the ball as the ball is brought to rest relative to the pendulum during the collision, what effect would this friction have on my results? thanks.
    p.s. drink up.
