 # A block slides down an inclined plane of slope angle ? with constant velocity. It is then projected up the same plane with an initial velocity 'u' . How far up the incline will it move before coming to rest?

block moves down the plane with constant velocity it means net force is zero...

force due to friction (f) = mgsin@                              (@ is the angle of plane)

net retardation force when body is projected upward is (f+mgsin@)

f = mgsin@ so

net retardation force = 2mgsin@

ma = mgsin@

a(retardation) = 2gsin@        .............1

V2 = U2 - 2aS

finally velocity becomes 0 so

U2 = 2aS

S = U2/2a

=u2/4gsin@

Dear Student,

U2 = 2aS
S = U2/2a
=u2/4gsin@

Thanks and Regards
