SHM Platform

  1. Sep 17, 2008 #1
    Hey all,

    I trying to get somewhere with the following problem and am not having much luck. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated! I found that the block leaves the platform at y=2.5 cm though.

    A platform is in SHM in the vertical direction with an amplitude of 5cm and freq. of 10/pi vibrations/sec. A block is put on the platform at the lowest point of its path. How far will the block rise above the highest point reached by the platform?

    Thanks!!

    Once the block leaves the platform, it's a free projectile. What's its speed when it leaves the leaves the platform?
