Physics exercise, part II

If you haven't done Part I first, go to hukuma and find it there. (I'd provide a direct link but that would spoil the order of the exercise.) The rest is Collapse )

Finally, the leader of the workshop explained that after having people suggest which ball will win and discussing the reasons for it (but before seeing the demonstration), very few students in his physics class change their mind, something on the order of 5%. In our workshop, I think only one person switched. So you guys are quite open-minded, actually!
