Suppose the wheel is rotated at a constant rate so that the mass has an upward speed of 4.07 m/s when it reaches a point P. At that moment, the wheel is released to rotate on its own. It starts slowing down and eventually reverses its direction due to the downward tension of the cord. What is the maximum height, h, the mass will rise above the point P?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

h =m

my question is what formula should i use? i've been using 1/2mv^2+1/2lw^2=mgh.....but i haven't been getting the right answer...if anyone knows has a hint that would help i would like to use it :)
