A 200 g hockey puck is launched up a metal ramp that is inclined at a 30° angle.
The coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the hockey puck and the metal ramp are
μs = 0.40 and μk = 0.30,respectively. The puck's initial speed is 63 m/s. What vertical height does the puck reach above its starting point?

You need to use the following equation to find the vertical height such that:
`v_i = sqrt(2*a*h) => v^2_i = 2*a*h => h = (v^2_i)/(2a)`
`h_v= h*sin 30^o`
d represents the vertical height
a represents the acceleration of the hockey puck...
