Newton's Laws Problem- Question on upcoming TEST!! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A small block is placed at height h on a frictionless 30 degree ramp. Upon being released, the block slides down the ramp then falls 1.0 m to the floor. A small hole is located 1.0 m from the end of the ramp. From what height h should the block be released in order to land in the hole? 2. Relevant equations Newton's Laws Kinematics Equations 3. The attempt at a solution I did the problem assuming there would be no initial Y-velocity. And figured out the time it would take for the object to fall to the ground after leaving the ramp, and the X-velocity it would need to get to the whole. The time was .45 seconds and the X-velocity was 2.21 m/s. With that it should be really easy to find the time to get to that velocity, and then the height needed to start from.... But I realized there would be an initial velocity in the y direction when it reaches the end of the ramp. I've spent nearly 3 hours trying to solve this problem, and it might be on an upcoming test. I have tried the problem with different axis, and I just can not figure it out. Please help, my test is this week!
