Problem P. 4036. (January 2008)

P. 4036. A small body of negligible size slides with a speed of v onto a long cart, which can move easily. The mass of the small body and the cart are the same. In the middle of the cart there is a slope which has a shape of a circular arc of central angle of 45o and of radius R. The small body slides along the slope and then it falls exactly to the end of the cart. What is the length of the cart? (Friction is negligible.)

Data: v=5 m/s, R=0.4 m.
