For a quick answer, set the initial kinetic energy at the bottom equal to the work done against friction, after traveling a horizontal distance X, where it stops.

(1/2) M Vo^2 = M g *(0.030)*X

Vo s the initial velocity at the foot of the hill.

M cancels out, and does not matter. Solve for X.

X = Vo^2/(2*g *.03)

Since you are using feet as the length unit, g = 32.2 ft^2/s
