# 7.44 .. Up and Down the Hill. A 28-kg rock approaches the foot of a hill with a speed of 15 m>s. This hill slopes upward at a constant angle of 40.0_ above the horizontal. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the hill and the rock are 0.75 and 0.20 respectively. (a) Use energy conservation to find the maximum height above the foot of the hill reached by the rock. (b) Will the rock remain at rest at its highest point or will it slide back down the hill? (c) If the rock does slide back down find its speed when it returns to the bottom of the hill.

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
