A simple pendulum is suspended from a peg on a vertiacl wall. The pendulum is pulled away from the wall to horizontal position and released . the ball hits the wall coefficient of restitution being 2/√5 . what is the minimum number of collisions after which the amplitude of oscillations becomes less than 60 degrees

Dear Anita
 
By the definition of coefficient of restitution, the velocity after each impact is $ \frac{2}{\sqrt{5}}$ of the velocity before it. Hence, the Kinetic energy after impact is $ \frac{4}{5}$ of that before.

To make amplitude $ \leq 60^0$, the maximum potential energy (and hence, the total energy) should be halved.

Observe that $ \left( \frac{4}{5}\right)^4<\frac{1}{2}$, and so, $ N=4$
