A red ball slides off a table as shown in the animation (position is in meters and time is in seconds). Ignore air friction. The ball undergoes an elastic collision with the other table (vy remains the same and vx changes sign).
Where will the red ball land? Start
x = 0.9 m. This is measured from the origin of coordinates.
