PHYSICS HELP! (INELASTIC VS ELASTIC COLLISIONS) ****10 POINTS****?

A small block of mass 2.0 kg is released from rest at the top of the curved frictionless ramp as shown above. The block slides down the ramp and is moving with a speed of 3.5 m/s when it collides with a larger block of mass 3.0 kg at rest at the bottom of the incline.

The block slides down the ramp and is moving with a speed of 3.5 m/s when it collides with a larger block of mass 3.0 kg at rest at the bottom of the incline. The larger block moves to the right at a speed of 2.0 m/s immediately after the collision.

a) Determine height (h) of the ramp from which the small box was released

b)Determine the speed of the small block (2.0 kg) after the collision

c)The larger block slides a distance of 1.0 m before coming to rest. Determine the value of the coefficient of kinetic friction, between the larger block and the surface on which it slides.

d)Indicate whether the collision between the two blocks is elastic or inelastic. Justify your answer.



Please help it's very important and i need to check my answers with someone!! THANKYOU :)
