The ball launcher in a pinball machine has a spring with a force constant of 1.10 N/cm (Fig. P5.71). The surface on which the ball moves is inclined 10.0° with respect to the horizontal. If the spring is initially compressed 5.00 cm, find the launching speed of a 0.100 kg ball when the plunger is released. Friction and the mass of the plunger are negligible.
so here's what i did
Ei = Ef, so
1/2kx^2 = mgsin@x + 1/2 mv^2
I got .377 m/s for the answer, but the real answer is 1.61 m/s
Plz tell me what i did wrong.
Thank You
