Homework Equations



Imp = integral F dt
mv = momentum
mgh
1/2 mv^2

The Attempt at a Solution



I drew to FBD's to find the impulses and such, but I just don't know what to do. I then tried to use impulse momentum combined with conservation of energy, but got the WRONG answer. I can take a picture of my work, but it'll mean nothing...

I was interested in solving this problem, but it turned out to be trickier than I thought it was...maybe I suck? hehe


anyways, google helped me find this:

looks familiar doesn't it?


how frustrating...somehow I overlooked the use of v = vo + a*t

so simple when you get another perspective, sometimes you get tunnel vision and want to solve it your own way but there are better ways

anyways blah...rambling
