## Homework Statement

Two bodies, A and B, arrive at the base of a frictionless inclined plane with equal momenta of magnitude p. If mass

_{b}= 3mass

_{a}, the ratio of the maximum distance that B travels up the plane to the maximum distance A travels up the plane is...

with choices

A) d

_{b}= d

_{a}

B) d

_{b}= 9d

_{a}

C) d

_{b}= 3d

_{a}

D) d

_{b}= (1/3)d

_{a}

E) d

_{b}= (1/9)d

_{a}

## Homework Equations

mv = p

not sure what else

## The Attempt at a Solution

Knowing they arrive at the base of this inclined plane with the same momentum, I'm thinking that mass

_{a}is traveling at a faster velocity than mass

_{b}. With this, I am assuming that mass

_{a}is going to travel up the inclined plane farther than mass

_{b}, but I do not really know where to start in terms of finding the actual ratio of the distance traveled between the two masses. Please and thank you for helping >_<
