Question
In Case 1, a spring launches a cart toward an incline and the cart rises a height H = 4 m up an incline
before coming momentarily to rest. In Case 2, the cart is launched exactly the same way, but collides and
sticks with an identical cart before encountering the incline. How high does the two-cart system rise up
the incline in Case 2? Justify your answer.
