Question 3
Consider the following diagram. A box with a mass of 5kg is sliding down the the
incline from rest when it reaches the bottom of the incline it has the velocity of
12m.s. the incline has unknown height x and the displacement of 10 m the
horizontal of it is 8m long its inclination angle is .



10m
x

8m
