Problem 11.10: A puck sliding on an air table collides with another puck
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
A 100-gram projectile is incident on a tethered mass on a tabletop (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). You are viewing the tabletop from above. Assume only conservative forces are acting. Determine the total angular momentum before and after each collision as measured from the pivot point of the pendulum (which is also the origin of coordinates). Restart.
