Double Ball Bounce

This assignment is similar to the Perpetual Ball Bounce assignment. It uses all the same principles and adds the overlapping action. In the sample animation shown here, the larger bottom ball bounces up and down while the small ball on top overlaps the action and reacts to the movements of it.
