The solution discusses how many times, how far and how long the ball bounces.

##### Solution Preview

a.)
Because, after every collision with the ground the ball will go up half of the height from which it was fallen. So, this process will continue for infinite number of bounces (h/2, h/4, h/8, h/16, h/32......)
b.)
distance travelled before first collision = h
distance travelled before second collision = 2*(h/2)
(rise h/2 and fall back)
distance travelled before third collision = 2*(h/4)
distance travelled before fourth collision = ...
