Aditya's challenges in Mechanics 2

Classical Mechanics Level 5

Consider the situation as shown above in the picture. The block \(m_2\) is given a slight push so as to slide down the semicircular region of radiuus \(r\). The big block \(m_1\) is perfectly smooth. There's no friction on the ground as well. What is the maximum velocity obtained by the block \(m_2\) after it returns down from the side which is close to the wall?

Details and Assumptions

  • \(g=10ms^{-2}\), \(m_1=1kg\), \(m_2=9kg\), \(r=10m\).
  • The big block isn't attached to the wall.
  • Consider the size of small block to be extremely small wrt big block.
