An idealized basketball falling from a height h bounces from the floor to a height h/2.
Tell us two things:
- The ball is dropped from a height of 1m.
Does it come to rest (stop bouncing) in finite time?
- Xavier, in post #5 shows us that after 9.31 seconds, the ball comes to rest.
We now specify that the ball is blue initially and on each bounce it changes color,
alternating between blue and red. After the ball comes to rest, it ceases to change color.
Question 2: what is its color after coming to rest?
