Homework Equations



Wnet=change in KE

The Attempt at a Solution


so I made the coordinate with x positive in right direction and y is positive up.
Fdcos30-mgh=.5mv^2
40*.2*cos30 - 5*9.8*sin15*.2 = .5*5*v^2
I got velocity to be .900

The correct answer was .6

oh nvm. I stepped away from this problem and realized the angle between the work and force was wrong.
