A water slide (also referred to as a flume, or water chute) is a type of slide designed for warm-weather or indoor recreational use at water parks. Water slides differ in their riding method and therefore size. Some slides require riders to sit directly on the slide, or on a raft or tube designed to be used with the slide.
A typical water slide uses a pump system to pump water to the top which is then allowed to freely flow down its surface. The water reduces friction so sliders travel down the slide very quickly. Water slides run into a swimming pool (often called a plunge pool) or a long run-out chute. A lifeguard is usually stationed at the top and the bottom of the slide, so that if a rider gets hurt they will be treated immediately.
So far I have reached a pretty promising equation that if uk * g >= F/(m1+m2+…+mn) then kth block will atleast surely not slide wrt the lower one. But the converse to this that if uk * g < … then it will “surely” slide is wrong!!
Stuck on this from many days!
Thanks (:
While my hunky husband was lifting the chair up, and my brawny brother pushing the frame down, I kept hitting the top of the slide with a screwdriver, to try to loosen the slide. But these parts are still wedged too tightly! We ran out of energy and ideas! How can we life hack this please...

Good day All!
I have a problem , I could do almost all the mechanism, my problem is how to make slide the little ball into the groove. whenever i run the program i got the follwing error message
['rotating_groove_cylinder_good_trial']: The following errors were found in the model...
ma = mg * sinα - fmg * cosα
a = g (sinα-f * cosα)
v = g*t(sinα - f * cosα)

f = 0.26
Can someone please check if my solution is correct? I'd really appreciate that.
Digression, but what on Earth is that ruler thing he's using to calculate products at 14:10 and 15:40?
Edit: I found it, it's called a "slide rule":
https://www.math.utah.edu/~alfeld/sliderules/
Vf = ?
y = ?
ME = mgy + 1/2mv^2
ME = 56*9.81*y + 1/2*56*1^2
Ui + Ki = Ui + Ki
gyi + 1/2vi^2 = gyf + 1/2 vf^2gyf = 1/2vf^2
vf = 5.425 m/s
9.81y + 1/2*1^2 = 9.81*1.5 + 1/2*5.425^2
y = 2.949 m
MEi = 56*9.81*2.949 + 1/2*56*1^2
MEi = 1648 J

This is a rough sketch of the model.
It is frictionless.

I don't really understand if the initial horizontal velocity is 0? Or do I assume it's some constant? Putting aside vertical velocity.
Also how should the "mechanical work done by gravity" be calculated? Is it just ##W = \frac{1}{2}mv^2_{final} - \frac{1}{2}mv^2_{initial}##
Hi! Does anyone know what drag coefficient has a person in a water slide? I've only found for full vertical/horizontal body, but not for a person in a water slide, considering it has a slope. Related to that, the cross area of a person can be calculated?

First I found the moment of inertia of the rod + rider to be I = (70 kg * 62 m2+ 1/3 * 24 kg * 62 m2)= 2808

Then I found the final angular momentum of the pole and rider...
