A car accelerates from rest with an acceleration of 3.5 m/s2 for 10 seconds. After this, it continues at a constant speed for an unknown amount of time. The driver notices a ramp 50 m ahead and takes 0.6 seconds to react. After reacting, the driver hits the brakes which slow the car with an acceleration of 7.2 m/s2. Unfortunately, the driver does not stop in time and goes off the 3m high ramp that is angled at 27°.

Two masses, my = 32 kg and mg = 38 kg, are connected by a rope that hangs over a pulley. The pulley is a uniform cylinder of radius R = 0.311 m and mass 3.1 kg. Initially my is on the ground and mg rests 2.5 m above the ground. If the system is released, use conservation of energy to determine the speed of me just before it strikes the ground. Assume the pulley bearing is frictionless.
