Q7.4 The two ramps shown are both frictionless, and the heights y1 and y2 are the same for each ramp.If a block of mass m is released from rest at the left-hand end of each ramp, which block arrives at the right-hand end with the greater speed? 1. The block on the curved track. 2. The block on the straight track. 3. Both blocks arrive at the right-hand end with the same speed. 4. The answer depends on the shape of the curved track.
