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

no one gave correct help the first time i sent this out. if you can't do it, dont worry.

a 100g granite cube slides down a 40 degree frictionless ramp. at the bottom, just as it exits onto a horizontal table, it collides with a 200 g steel cube at rest, how high above the table should the granite cube be released to give the steel cube a speed of 150cm/s

2. Relevant equations

energy equations, momentum equations

3. The attempt at a solution

do not assume this is straight forward. i am a first year university student with alot of physics behind me and i cant get the solution. i tried posting it before, but no one could get the correct answer. before you help, please post your answer.

i used regular equivalent momentums before and after then subbed in the remaining velocity into the energy equations to yield h. sounds simple huh? try it.
