Hello my dear Sherlocks and Einsteins, I hope you have your puzzle hats on, and maybe your math brain working.
This week’s puzzle might include a bit of math, so if that’s not your thing, you can skip to the answer in the comments!
This puzzle may require a certain amount of thought.
Imagine that you have a pair of perfectly elastic balls, one very much larger and heaver than the other. You place the lighter ball on top of the heavier one, and then drop them a distance of 1ft onto a perfectly rigid floor.
How high will the lighter ball bounce?
It may help to bear in mind that kinetic energy is: (mass x (speed x speed)) / 2.
As always, answers are in the comments!
