When the two balls collide with each other,as the mass of the two balls is equal, they exchange their velocities on colliding elastically. Let the speed of the ball when it reaches back to the initial position be Then Heightreaches by particle (from highest point on the incline)is total height After collision the particle reaches the maximum height = Ratio = |
