Gayle runs at a speed of 4.30 m/s and dives on a sled, initially at rest on the top of a frictionless snow-covered hill. After she has descended a vertical distance of 5.00 m, her brother, who is initially at rest, hops on her back and together they continue down the hill. What is their speed at the bottom of the hill if the total vertical drop is 15.0 m? Gayle's mass is 47.5 kg, the sled has a mass of 5.40 kg and her brother has a mass of 30.0 kg.

• ### A 15.0 kg stone slides down a snow-covered hill, leaving point A at a speed of 10.0 m/s

A 15.0 kg stone slides down a snow-covered hill, leaving point A at a speed of 10.0 m/s. There is no friction on the hill between points A and B, but there is friction on the level ground at the bottom of the hill, between B and the wall. After entering the rough horizontal region, the stone travels 100 m and then runs into a very long, light spring with force constant 2.0 N/m. The coefficients of kinetic friction between...

A 5-kg sled is sliding on a horizontal rough surface with a speed of 18 m/s. The coefficier kinetic friction between the block and surface is 0.15. After travelling 25-m, it encounters as covered hill (where friction can be ignored) and slides uphill. The hill makes an angle of 38。 horizontal. (a) How much work is done against friction during the 25-m horizontal travel? the maximum elevation on the hill the block reaches? (c) How much work is done against...
