Answer to Question #37265 in Mechanics | Relativity for alzahra
The drawing shows two boxes resting on frictionless ramps. One box is relatively light and sits on a steep ramp. The other box is heavier and rests on a ramp that is less steep. The boxes are released from rest at A and allowed to slide down the ramps. The two boxes have masses of 9 and 48 kg. If A and B are 5.5 and 0.5 m, respectively, above the ground, determine the speed of (a) the lighter box and (b) the heavier box when each reaches B. (c) What is the ratio of the kinetic energy of the heavier box to that of the lighter box at B?
SOLUTION from the conservation energy law : reduction of potential energy equals to increase of kinetic energy
for a small box Ep=m*g*h - reduction of the potential energy g=10H/kg h=(A-B)=5m Ep=9*10*5=450J Ek=m*V^2/2 - increase of the kinetic energy so Ep=Ek m*g*h=m*V^2/2 g*h=V^2/2 V^2=2*g*h V=sqrt(2*g*h)=sqrt(2*10*5)=sqrt(100)=10
V=10m/s - velocity does NOT depend on mass
so a) velocity of the lighter box V_light=10m/s b) velocity of the heavier box V_heavy=10m/s c) ratio of the kinetic energy m_heavy=48kg m_light=9kg R=Ek_heavy/Ek_light=(m_heavy*V^2/2) / (m_light*V^2/2)=m_heavy / m_light = 48/9= 5.33 R=5.33

The assignment was completed correctly after a few inquiries back and forth with the expert. Once I advised which version of python I was using the correct solution was provided. Good cost and I got 100% on my assignment. Would recommend again and again!
