Dear ramya


Total horigontal force = mg cos Θ sin Θ

so acceleration  =mg cos Θ sin Θ  /M

N=mg cos Θ

the acceleration =N sinΘ /M

here we are assuming than wedge is placed on the smooth surface .

Sir,The final velocity of a particle falling freely under gravity is given by V^2-u^2=2gx where x is the distance covered. If V=18kmph g=1000cms^-2 x=120cm the u = ms^-1
Just put all the values simply to get the value of u. Therefore, V^2 – u^2 = 2*g*x (18 * 1000 * 100/60*60)^2 = u^2 + 2*1000*120 u^2 = 250000 – 240000 u^2 = 10,000 u = 100 cm/s
