Question A – Physics

Two balls, stacked together as illustrated below, are released from a certain height. The ball on the bottom has a mass of 1000kg and the ball on the top has a mass of 1kg. Upon impact, the balls both have a speed of 10m/s. Assuming all collisions are elastic, what is the speed of the small ball after impact, rounded to the nearest whole number?

Hints:

  • All frames of reference are equal. 
  • The mass of the small ball is negligible compared to the mass of the big ball, or, alternatively, the mass of the large ball can be seen as infinite.
