Unformatted text preview: Hand-in Assignment 4 1) A 2.0kg wood block is launched up a long wooden ramp that is inclined at 30 with the horizontal (ms = 0.5, mk = 0.2). The block's initial speed is 10.m/s. a) What vertical height does the block reach above its initial point? b) Show that it will slide back down the ramp after coming to a stop. c) What speed does it have when it reaches its starting point?
Model: We will represent the wood block as a particle, and use the model of kinetic friction and kinematics. Assume w sin q > fs, so it does not hang up at the t...
