Copy the video to the desktop by right clicking. (You need to start the video playing, first.) Then use LoggerPro to plot the position of both balls. Create calculated columns for the X- and Y- CoMs. The masses of the balls are 144 grams and 212 grams. (The larger ball is the one that starts out in my hand. )
Create 2 graphs: One with x1, x2, and x-com, and the other with y1, y2, and y com. I will show you how to analyze them.
A link to a description of how to use LoggerPro to analyze videos is here.
