**drwls**, Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 6:46amAt the bottom of the ramp, the block has acquired kinetic energy MgH, where H = 1.5 - 0.25 = 1.25 m.

Its velocity is therefore

V = sqrt(2gH) = 4.95 m/s

Multiply that (horizontal) velocity by the time it takes to fall H' = 0.25 m vertically.

T = sqrt (2H'/g) = 0.051 s

That will give you the distance d.

d = sqrt (2gH) * sqrt (2H'/g)

= 2 sqrt(H*H')

It is interesting that d is independent of g. If g were zero, it would not fall down the ramp at all
