Asked Feb 13, 2020
A block of mass 14.2 kg is sliding at an initial velocity of 2.90 m/s in the positive x-direction. The surface has a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.193. (Indicate the direction with the signs of your answers.)
What is the force of kinetic friction (in N) acting on the block?
What is the block's acceleration (in m/s2)?
How far will it slide (in m) before coming to rest?
