A block of mass M1 travels horizontally with a constant speed vo on a plateau of height H until it comes to
a cliff. A toboggan of mass M2 is positioned on level ground below the cliff as shown above. The center of the
toboggan is a distance D from the base of the cliff.
(a) Determine D in terms of vo
(b) The block sticks to the toboggan which is free to slide without friction. Determine the resulting velocity of
the block and toboggan.
, H, and g so that the block lands in the center of the toboggan.
1981B2. A massless spring is between a 1-kilogram mass and a 3-kilogram mass as shown above, but is not
attached to either mass. Both masses are on a horizontal frictionless table.
