# A box with an initial speed of #1 m/s# is moving up a ramp. The ramp has a kinetic friction coefficient of #3/4 # and an incline of #pi /8 #. How far along the ramp will the box go?

Now, initially,the box has a tendency to go up,so frictional force will act along with the downward component of its weight to stop the motion.

After that the block will come to momentary rest and try to move down due to its downwards component of weight,but maximum frictional force value is more than that,so it will keep the block at rest at that point.

The distance is

Then the net force on the object is

According to Newton's Second Law of Motion

So

The negative sign indicates a deceleration

To find the distance the box travels along the ramp, you can use the equation:

[ d = \frac{{v_0^2}}{{2g}} \left( \mu_k \cos(\theta) + \sin(\theta) \right) ]

Where:

- ( d ) = distance along the ramp
- ( v_0 ) = initial speed of the box (1 m/s)
- ( g ) = acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s²)
- ( \mu_k ) = kinetic friction coefficient (3/4)
- ( \theta ) = angle of incline (π/8 radians)

Plugging in the values:

[ d = \frac{{(1 , \text{m/s})^2}}{{2 \times 9.8 , \text{m/s}^2}} \left( \frac{3}{4} \cos\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right) + \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right) \right) ]

[ d \approx \frac{{1}}{{19.6}} \left( \frac{3}{4} \times 0.9239 + 0.3827 \right) ]

[ d \approx \frac{{1}}{{19.6}} \left( 0.6929 + 0.3827 \right) ]

[ d \approx \frac{{1}}{{19.6}} \times 1.0756 ]

[ d \approx 0.0549 , \text{m} ]

So, the box will travel approximately 0.0549 meters along the ramp.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
