Boxes are transported by a conveyor belt with a velocity v_0 to a fixed incline at A where they slide and eventually fall off at B. Knowing that u_k=0.40, determine the velocity of the conveyor belt if the boses leave the incline at B with a velocity of 2m/s.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:50 pm ad1c9bdddf
we will use the conservation of energy here,
the initial energy of the box E = Kinetic+ Potential
= (1/2)mv^2 + mgh
from the figure, h = 6*sin15 = 1.55
final enrgy = (1/2) m ...
