Momentum and Newton's Laws of Motion

Momentum and Newton's Laws of Motion problem 23

A body with a mass of rolls up a circular slope as shown in the figure below. The velocity at point is equal to half the initial speed at point A. The circular slope is very smooth and has radius .

Figure 1: Body on a circular slope

  • Write an equation that relates the initial velocity to the angle .

  • Calculate the initial velocity of the body.

  • Calculate the force with which the slope acts on the body when it is at an angle ?

  • How high does the body reach?

  • What is the range of the body?
