Crate on a Freely Rolling Ramp

Posted by AlexMabee on Dec. 04, 2009

http-//www.AlexPleaseHelp.com Physics problem involving the conservation of momentum and conservation of energy. A crate starts from rest at the top of a freely moving, frictionless ramp (see diagram in video). The crate weighs 80 lb, and the ramp weighs 120lb. The crate is released from rest and it slides down the 15 ft ramp. 1) Find the velocity of the ramp when the crate reaches the bottom of the ramp. 2) How far does the ramp move while the crate slides down the ramp?. http-//www.alexpleasehelp.com/online/problems/rollingramp
