-------------------------------------

Calculations:

m = 2500 Kg

Vi = 14 m/s

Vf = 0 m/s

deltaD = 25 m

a = (vf^2 - vi^2)/(2 x deltaD)

= -14 m/s / 50

= 2.8 m/s^2

W = (2500) (9.81)

= 24525 N

Fnet = (2500)(-0.28)

= -700 N

I`m not sure what to do after this.

Use that equation to get the friction force, f.

The coefficient of kinetic friction, Uk, can be obtained from

Uk = f/(M*g)
