1. Vf^2 = = Vo^2 + 2gd = 0,

a. Vo^2 - 2*9.8 * 1.35 = 0,
Vo^2 - 26.46 = 0,
Vo^2 = 26.46,
Vo = 5.14m/s.

b. Fs = mg = 20kg * 9.8N/kg = 196N. =
Force of the sled.

196 @ 28deg.

Fp=196sin28 = 92N. = Force of the sled acting parallel to plane downward.

d=1.35m / sin28 = 2.88m = The distance traveled up the plane.

W = Fp*d = 92 * 2.88 = 265 Joules.
