I am asked to explain how to calculate total bounce distance:
A "super" rubber ball is one that is measured to bounce when dropped 70% or higher that the distance from which it is dropped.
You are to take a super rubber ball that bounces 75% of it dropped height and you are to find out the total distance traveled by this ball when dropped from the top of a 100 foot building.
Careful with your calculations in the very beginning of this experiment.
I planned on working out the problem by taking 75% from each bounce util the height was near or equal to 0 then add each bounce together for the total.
Is there an easier way to do this. Thanks for the help.
