## Homework Statement

Well I figured out the first problem I had posted so here's a new one :)

If two objects of different masses are sliding along a frictionless surface at the same speed and they both slide of the same frictionless surface. which rises to a greater height?

I want to say they both go to the same height. or does the lighter of the two go further because it has less force acting upon it while going up the hill?

thank you

Sorry, your question doesn't make sense to me. If they are sliding on a surface, how do they rise? Is there a tilt in the surface?

And what equations would you use to figure this out? There are several ways to approach it -- please show us some of your work using one of the approaches....

What FilthyOtis (feels weird saying that) was trying to say was:

... If two objects of different masses are sliding along a frictionless surface at the same speed and they both slide OFF the same frictionless surface. which rises to a greater height?...
