Default How to plot post-collision trajectories of 2 cylinders



Hi all,

Imagine two thin cylinders are flying through 3d space
toward each other. Each has a different mass and length;
each has its center of gravity at the middle of its length.
They will collide, but the collision may occur anywhere along
the length. Each is probably rotating while in motion at its own
speed, like two dowels simultaneously thrown at each other.
The collision is elastic.

How would one estimate how each will respond
to the collision?

Thanks.

I don't know what your major in college is or your level of math expertise.
When I was a physics undergrad, this was the math course right after diffy q
and integrals. It is all done thru matrix manipulation.
