Problems with wedges (1)

In the figure shown above, a ball of mass mm collides perpendicularly with constant velocity uu on a smooth stationary wedge of mass MM with inclination θ\theta kept on a smooth horizontal plane. If the coefficient of restitution of collision is ee, then determine the velocity of the wedge after collision.

Details:

  • Assume gravity has no effect on the ball of mass mm until it collides with the wedge and during its collision.
