IM in Phys.20 Got this question for an assignment. Tried it and got stuck. I really need help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

--------

When golfing, uphill and downhill putts present different levels of difficulty. Suppose a green has a 5.0 degree slope and the force of friction will be 0.10N against the ball's motion. The ball has a mass of 46g and the length of putt will be 10.0m.

Which putt (uphill or downhill) presents a greater level of difficulty? Explain your reasoing using appropriate calculations

Draw Free body diagrams for both purrs. Find range of speed you may give the ball on each type of putt so that even if you miss the ball will stop within 1.0m of the hole.

-------

I know uphill would be more difficult because it requires more force but im having a hard time proving this using Free body diagrams and mathematical reasoning.

THANKS FOR THE HELP,

Coglon
