Sliding Blocks
(14 points possible)

A small cube of mass 1.0 kg slides down a circular and frictionless track of radius 0.6 m cut into a large block of mass 4.0 kg as shown in the figure below. The large block rests on a horizontal and frictionless table. The cube and the block are initially at rest, and the cube starts from the top of the path. Find the speed of the cube as it leaves the block. Take 10.0 m/s . Enter your answer in m/s.
