    Please see the attachment for full description and figure

    The spring shown in Figure P11.54 is compressed 40 cm and used to launch a 100 kg physics student. The track is frictionless until it starts up the incline. The student's coefficient of kinetic friction on the 30° incline is 0.15.

    (a) What is the student's speed just after losing contact with the spring?

    (b) How far up the incline does the student go?
