Problem: A block of mass m = 2.00 kg is released from rest at h = 0.500 m above the surface of a table, at the top of a θ = 30.0° incline as shown in Figure P5.101. The frictionless incline is fixed on a table of height H = 2.00 m. (a) Determine the acceleration of the block as it slides down the incline. (b) What is the velocity of the block as it leaves the incline? (c) How far from the table will the block hit the floor? (d) What time interval elapses between when the block is released and when it hits the floor?
