Could you please help, I don’t understand this problem. I thought it would rise 20cm because it raises the same height according to Newton’s first law, but that is wrong.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

could not import diagram.

but it is like a half pipe and a ball is on the left side and it is 20 cm from the ground to the top of the half pipe.

Referring to the above diagram, if the incline on the right has a slope of 5 cm of rise for each 2 cm of run, how far will the ball travel horizontally?
