Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jessie on Thursday, December 15, 2011 at 4:08pm.

A block is sent up a frictionless ramp along which an x axis extends upward. The figure below gives the kinetic energy of the block as a function of position x; the scale of the figure's vertical axis is set by Ks = 46.0 J. If the block's initial speed is 4.50 m/s, what is the normal force on the block?

I got 44.5 N but this was wrong. How would I go about correctly solving this?
