- Homework Statement
- A 3.0-kg mass is sliding on a horizontal frictionless surface with a speed of 3.0 m/s when it collides with a 1.0-kg mass initially at the bottom of a circular track. The masses stick together and slide up a frictionless circular track of radius 0.40 m. To what maximum height, h, above the horizontal surface (the original height of the masses) will the masses slide?

- Relevant Equations
- mv = mv Momentum

1/2mv^2 Kinetic Energy

mgh Potential Energy

(mv^2)/r Centripetal Force

Found the speed at which the masses will travel after their collision: 2.25m/s
