A block of mass M is projected up a frictionless inclined plane with a speed VO. The angle of incline is given as theta.
a. How far up the plane does it go?
b. How much time does it take to get there
the vertical component of the velocity is … VO cos(Θ) … the time to reach max height is the vertical velocity, divided by the gravitational acceleration … t = [VO cos(Θ)]/g … the distance up the plane is the speed multiplied by the time … d = VO * t
