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.

In baseball, a base runner can usually get to a base quicker by running than by sliding. Explain why this is so. Why slide then?
A base runner can get quicker to the base by running than by sliding because every time the runner’s foot comes in contact with the ground, he loses some portion of his momentum. And...

A cord is wrapped around the flywheel of radius 0.5m. if a mass of 50N hangs from the cord, compute the angular acceleration.
Calculate the torque due to applied force, which would be equal to the torque of rotation (Ia). You just consider the flywheel as disc and put the value of moment of inertia. Good...
