ignoring part a, for part b do i have to put a negative in front of s? cos i keep getting a negatuve value when it shoukd be positive. the answer to a is 0.77 so u dont gotta work it out and b is 0.31

I did it using conversation of energy + momentum conversation. Initially the GPE = (9.8)(0.5)(1.5)=7.35 J. All of this gets converted to KE thus 1/2mv^2=7.35 --> solve for v and you get approx 5.422m/s. Then conservation of momentum so m1v1= m2v2 thus (0.5)(5.422)=3.5v2 --> solving for v2 u get 0.77m/s

Ill see if I can do part b tmr since its late but hopefully this helps
Yeah part a is fine ik how to do it i just said ignore it since u only need the answer for part a to do part b but thank you anyways!

distance is always positive so yeah it should be. it’s just a matter of taking absolute value at the end, or u can define the direction of the friction force to be negative so the answer works out, either one works

Ohhhh yeahh i forgot that i should make friction negative thank you
