A mass starts from rest at the upper rim of a semi-circle of radius 8m. In the bottom of this there is a region of size 1m which has a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.5. What is the maximum height that the mass reaches after passing through this region once?
Note: arc length
∫cos(ax)dx = 1/a sin(ax)
The Attempt at a Solution
I do not know where to start. :S
