    challenging question!!! think you're smart enough?

    here is a very good questioninvolving inclines and projectile motion. please answer in full show your work and answers.

    A small mass m1=2.0kg, sits on a frictionless incline attached to a heavy mass m2=10kg. when the system is released, m2 falls 2.5m then sticks to the ground, while m1 travels up the incline and is then launched as a projectile. determine the altitude w.r.t the ground reached by m1. (assume smooth transition as m1 leaves the incline.)

    No, I'm not going to fall for that. Do your own homework!
