The figure shows m1 on a curved ramp at a height of 5 m.

Since it is elastic, I know energy and momentum are conserved. So I have:

(1/2)m1*v1o^2+(1/2)m2*v2o^2 = (1/2)m1*v1f^2+(1/2)m2*v2f^2

and

m1*v1o+m2*v2o = m1*v1f+m2*v2f

m2 is initially at rest, so v2o=0. Now I am not sure how I am supposed to use these to find height, or anything at all for that matter. Can anyone give me a point in the right direction?
