This report is the modelling and study of the n-ball collision problem, a derivation of Y. Berdeni's work in University of Bristol. The report uses two different models, linear and Hertzian, to study the behaviour and energy of a vertical chain of colliding spheres. An analytical solution to the linear model is also used to compare with the results of the numerical simulation of the same model. Finally, there is an analysis of the possible relations between the different parametres of the problem.
