Kin 335 - biomechanics the coefficient of restitution (e) is an index that describes the relative elasticity of an impact and ranges between 0 to 1. To properly account for the inelastic nature of real world bouncing ball physics problems, it is common to introduce a coefficient of restitution, which accounts for the loss of kinetic energy during each bounce. The effect of temperature on the restitutional coefficient of a golf ball subject: ib physics ii research project 8 calculation 1: coefficient of restitution.
The coefficient of restitution, d/h, is the fraction of mechanical energy remaining after first bounce each time the ball bounces, energy is dissipated in the form of heat and acoustical energy and the height is reduced by roughly the same factor: the coefficient of restitution. The coefficient of restitution (cor) is a measure of the restitution of a collision between two objects: how much of the kinetic energy remains for the objects to rebound from one another vs how much is lost as heat, or work done deforming the objects. Mr horwat's science pages search this site home honors chemistry pendulum lab lab (ch 6): coefficient of restitution lab (ch 6): collisions (pine derby cars.
Demonstration lab currently selected demonstration catalog to demonstrate the different values of the coefficient of restitution for different balls made of a. The coefficient of restitution part i: open the lab in your web browser (mobile phones not recommended), navigate to wwwgigaphysicscom, then click virtual. Coefficient of restitution, both the standard using a flat wood block and cylindrical using a solid-steel half cylinder, and compression tests are used to evaluate the performance in a controlled lab environment.
Physics 230 lab #8 - linear air track measurement of the coefficient of restitution once again, start the cart from 1 or 2 m away from the ending point and this. The coefficient of restitution depends on the material the ball is made of and is always smaller than 1 the coefficient of restitution is a ratio of speeds to find. Understanding the coefficient of restitution (cor) using mass/spring systems dr david kagan department of physics california state university, chico.
If the coefficient of restitution is e, find the angle at which the ball emerges from the floor let us assume that the ball is the mass `` '' and that the earth is mass `` '' in this case the and are parallel to and. Exploring the relationship between the pressure of the ball and coefficient of restitution when i started thinking about possible investigations i knew i wanted to create a lab. The user will drag the ball to some height, provide an initial x velocity, and a coefficient of restitution (how bouncy the ball is) from there it will move in the direction of the x velocity and begin to fall with an acceleration of 98 m/s 2. Which enables the normal coefficient of restitution to be predicted from the schmidt hammer rebound values of the projectile and the impact surface the results.
An intermediate mechanics experiment is described in which the coefficient of restitution is determined from measurements on the oblique impact between two spheres a typical set of data is presented. This chapter derives the coefficient of restitution from the interaction forces it shows that the coefficient is not a material constant but rather depends on impact velocity.
