VI the reference level y = 0 in Fig. 8-34), so in the absence of friction, the sum of these is a constant. We are given that VA = 0 and YA = 3.8 m, so we can evaluate the constant and express the mechanical energy at any other point in terms of it: ~mv2 + mgy = mgYA. (a) Solving for the speed at point H, we find VB = V29(YA - YB) = m - 2.6 m) = 4.85 m/s. (b) Similarly, Vc = 7.00 m/s. (c) The right-hand turning point is the point D where the particle's velocity is instantaneously zero, before changing dire...
