Homework Statement


A crate with scientific equipment slides down a curved frictionless side of lunar crater of the depth h, and then up along the other side which is an inclined plane. The coefficient of kinetic friction between crate and incline is k, and the inclined side makes an angle θ with the horizontal. Use energy methods to find the maximum height ymax reached by the crate.
