Planet Gizmo

On Planet Gizmo a small block was observed, State (1), sliding down an inclined plane. A "down-the-plane" coordinate, "s", was imagined with the block at its origin, s = 0 at the time, t = 0+. The mass of the block is: m = 8kg. Initially the elevation of the block and its its kinetic energy were: zB,1 = 6m and KEB,1 = 4J, respectively.

A datum for vector space and potential energy (x = 0, z = 0) and a unit vector basis (I and K) are defined on the sketch.

Position: PB,1 = PB,2 =
Speed: |V|B,1 = |V|B,2 =
Velocity: VB,1 = VB,2 =

Later at State (2), the time is t = 4 seconds and the occurs later Later, at time

Write the Velocity as speed times direction.

Write its Momentum in component form.
