A hockey puck is given an initial speed of 5.0 m/s. If the coefficient of kinetic
friction between the puck and the ice is 0.05, how far does the puck slide before coming
to rest? Solve this problem using conservation of energy.


Expert Answer

Step 1


The initial speed of the puck, v = 5.0m/s

The coefficient of friction between the puck and the ice, µk = 0.05

Step 2

Using the Work energy theorem,

The Work d...
