i used the formula (1/2)mv1^2 + mgy1 = (1/2)mv2^2 + mgy2 and just solved for v2^2 to solve a question involving speed down an incline, but i am not getting the correct answer, can i do this?
If there is no friction, yes. But in that case only gravity and the Normal force will have to be present in your FBD.
