Statement of a problem № 42335


A small block of mass m1 = 0.500 kg is released from rest at the top of a curve-shaped frictionless wedge of mass m2 = 3.00 kg, which sits on a frictionless horizontal surface as in Figure P9.60a. When the block leaves the wedge, its velocity is measured to be 4.00 m/s to the right, as in Figure P9.60b. (a) What is the velocity of the wedge after the block reaches the horizontal surface? (b) What is the height h of the wedge?
