1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1.Main question: Why would anyone need to know the total VERTICAL distance traveled by a bouncing ball? 2.Other question: Does anyone have a link to an explanation (or could explain themselves) on how to calculate the total HORIZONTAL distance traveled by a bouncing ball? 3. The attempt at a solution For the second question, I have filmed and analysed (plotted the points) of a few trajectories, so I have the values, I just need to explain why i got those values and I don't know how..
