Particle Speed

A small particle slides along a frictionless wire. If the particle's speed at point A is 8.85m/sec how fast is it moving at point B if it must go up a 2m incline?

Solution Preview

At point A: KE (kinetic energy) = 0.5 * m * v^2 = 0.5 * m * 8.85^2 = 39.16 m and PE ...

Solution Summary

This solution calculates the speed of an article going up an incline.
