Astro Academy Collisions Two equal mass head on side view model built suggests slight difference in contact force is due 3 possible errors?

Astro Academy Collisions Two equal mass head on side view model built suggests slight difference in the contact force due to perspective error?

sources of errors

  1. Tracker model builder has systemic error?
  2. video is taken sideways with a slight perspective error that can result in the discrepant data
  3. motion is not perfectly in x direction?


i need to analyse the video more in depth.
my model tracker file can be downloaded here
