Question

Shown below is a box of mass m1 that sits on a frictionless incline at an angle above the horizontal θ = 30 ° . This box is connected by a relatively massless string, over a frictionless pulley, and finally connected to a box at rest over the ledge, labeled m2 . If m1 and m2 are a height h above the ground and m2 >>m1 : (a) What is the initial gravitational potential energy of the system? (b) What is the final kinetic energy of the system?
