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 box is pushed through 4m across a floor offering 100 N resistance.How much work is done by resisting force? I expect the answer to be (-400 J) but it is 400 J. It is from H.C.V erma book....
Dear Student, The answer shud be -400 N as here the direction of displacement is Opposite to that of the resisting force ie. Body moves forward and Force acts backwards. And W=F.d=Fd so the...

A body thrown along a frictionless inclined plane of angle of inclination 30 degrees covers a distance 40m along the plane. If the body is projected with the same speed at an angle of 30...
First we need to calculate the velocity of the body on the inclined plane. For that we use the formula v^2=u^2+2as. We cannot use the value of acc 10 m/s^2 because acc is a vector quantity...
