the sloping side is frictionless, it is spun at constant speed by rotating the wedge. show that when a mass rises up the wedge a distance L, the speed of the mass is v=sqr(gLsin0)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I got Fx=m(v^2/r) = mgsin0

v^2=g*sin0*r

can I say r=L ????

I got stuck, could you give me some hints thank you
