1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A block given an intial velocity of 2m/s up a frictionless inclined at 60 degrees to the horizontal. What is the highest point reached by the block?

2. Relevant equations

gsin(θ)=a

a=v/t

d=vit + 1/2at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Found vx = vsin60= 2(sin60)=1.73

I solved for the acceleration

10(sin60)= 8.66 m/s^2

Then I found time using v/t=a

Then plugged in the time t into

d=vit+1/2at^2

Then used sin60= Opposite/hypotonuse to solve for the height.

But I did not get the correct answer of .24m. Can someone tell me where I am going wrong and point me in the right direction please
