A wagon having a total mass (including its wheels) of 1000 kg, has four wheels each of mass 100 kg and each having a radius of 0.5 m and a radius of gyration of 0.45 m. The wagon starts from rest at the top of an incline of 1 in 10 (sine). If there is a resistance to motion (assumed constant) of 50 N, determine the velocity of the wagon after it has moved a distance of 300 m.

2. Relevant equations

1/2*m*v^2

1/2*Iω^2

3. The attempt at a solution

No idea how to start, sorry.
