A block of mass m = 1.50 kg is at rest on a ramp of mass M=

4.50 kg which, in turn, is at rest on a frictionless horizontal

surface (Fig. P8.13a). The block and the ramp are aligned

so that each has its center of mass located at x = 0. When

released, the block slides down the ramp to the left and the

ramp, also free to slide on the frictionless surface, slides to

the right as in Figure P8.13b. Calculate x_{ramp}, the distance the

ramp has moved to the right, when x_{block} = -0.300 m.

Step 1

Here,

Step 2
