First and foremost determine the direction in which collision is taking place. Along that direction apply the restituion concept and conservation of momentum. Remember that perpendicular to that direction there is no impulse and hence no change in velocity. In case of two spheres colliding obliquely with one of them at rest remember that the one at rest will move only along the direction of collision. I would strongly recommend against the use of any formula as there are too many subcases involved.

a partical droped from the heighest place of a building. in the final second the particle moved half height of the bulding . what is the height of the building?
distance travelled in n seconds, s = 5n^2 v= 10(n-1) s’= 10(n-1)+ 5 (n-1)^2 s-s’= s/2= 5n^2- 10n+10-5n^2+10n-5= 5= s/2 s=10

Two trains , each having a speed of 30km/h, are headed at each other on the same straight track . A bird that can fly 60 km/h flies off the front of one train when they are 60 km apart and...
relative velocity of train wrt the other train is 30-(-30)=60km/h relative distance is 60 km therefore time taken for collision is 60km/60km/h= 1hr total distance the bird will cover in 1hr...

Why is the time taken in a parabolic path to reach the topmost point equal to the time take to reach the the bottom from the topmost point ?
Dear student, The parabolic path is symmetrical about the vertex. The vertex of the parabolic path is at the highest point and therefore it takes an equal amount of time to reach the top and...
