Problem Details

A rubber ball is dropped onto a ramp that is tilted at 20 , as shown in the figureA figure shows a ball bouncing down a slope tilted at a 20 degrees angle with respect to the horizontal. The ball falls straight then bounces sideways and travels a horizontal distance of 3 meters on its first bounce. . A bouncing ball obeys the "law of reflection," which says that the ball leaves the surface at the same angle it approached the surface. The balls next bounce is 3.0 to the right of its first bounce.
