  1. Feb 26, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    W= -um2gh
    m1gh=.5Kh^2-um2gh
    .5K(h)^2
    Final Eq?:
    W=um2g*(2g(m1+um2)/K)


    3. The attempt at a solution
    .2(4)9.8*(2*9.8(7+.2(4))/9 = 133.1754667
    I dont know if I went wrong in manipulating the equation but I suspect thats the issue?
