Delivering Rescue Supplies
You are a member of an alpine rescue team and must project a box of supplies, with mass
, up
an incline of constant slope angle
so that it reaches a stranded skier who is a vertical distance
above the bottom of the incline. The incline is slippery, but there is some friction present, with
kinetic friction coefficient
