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

The coefficient of friction between the block of mass m1 = 3.00 kg and the surface in the figure below is μk = 0.335. The system starts from rest. What is the speed of the ball of mass m2 = 5.00 kg when it has fallen a distance h = 1.45 m?

2. Relevant equations

Ff = UsN

T - mg = ma

Y = Yo + Vot + 1/2at^2 (maybe, I'm not sure)

3. The attempt at a solution

I found that a = 4.89m and that the tension in the string is 24.45N. I don't know how to then take teh distance 0f 1.45m travelled into consideration and work with this.
