Homework Help: physics

Posted by shyne1 on Sunday, November 18, 2012 at 1:25am.

A block of mass 0.78kg starts from rest at point A and slides down a frictionless hill of height h. At the bottom of the hill it slides across a horizontal piece of track where the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.29. This section (from points B to C) is 4.08m in length. The block then enters a frictionless loop of radius r= 2.87m. Point D is the highest point in the loop. The loop has a total height of 2r. Note that the drawing below is not to scale.
a)What is the minimum speed of the block at point D that still allows the block to complete the loop without leaving the track?
b)What is the minimum kinetic energy for the block at point C in order to have enough speed at point D that the block will not leave the track?
c)What is the minimum kinetic energy for the block at point B in order to have enough speed at point D that the block will not leave the track?
d)What is the minimum height from which the block should start in order to have enough speed at point D that the block will not leave the track?
