it says to use conservation of energy we know conservation of energy when not dealing with heat is u+k=u+k where u is the potential energy and k is you kinetic energy. potential energy is mass x gravity x height. kinetic energy is (1/2)(mass)(velocity)^2. from there you get ...

you have to use both conservation of momentum and energy. Start with conservation of momentum, solve for one of the ball's velocity in terms of all the other variables, then substitute that into the conservation of energy. The algebra is substantial, so be prepared.
Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at 11:49pm by bobpursley
I have no idea what the picture is, but you can use conservation of energy (as you have done) to solve it. The speed at C is zero, so you know the energy was lost to friction. Again, conservation of energy.

Use conservation of energy. The mass won't matter; it cancels out of the energy conservation equaiton. M g H = (1/2) M V^2 Solve for H, in terms of V.

The easy way is to use conservation of energy. At the vertical position, the potential energy decrease, M g L/2, equals the kinetic energy increase, which is (1/2) I w^2 = (1/6)ML^2*w^2 gL/2 = L^2 w^2/6 w^2 = 3 g/L w = sqrt(3g/L) = 5.42 rad/s (since L = 1 meter)
