A 237g air track glider moving at 0.80m/s on a 2.4 long air track collides elastically with a 513g glider at rest in the middle of the track. The end of the track over which the struck glider moves is not level, but slants upward at an angle of 0.70 degrees with respect to the horizontal. Will the glider reach the end of the track? Neglect the length of the gliders.
