A large fake cookie sliding on a horizontal surface is attached to one end of a horizontal spring with spring constant k = 375 N/m; the other end of the spring is fixed in place. The cookie has a kinetic energy of 20.0 J as it passes through the position where the spring is unstretched. As the cookie slides, a frictional force of magnitude 10.0 N acts on it.

(a) How far will the cookie slide from the position where the spring is unstretched before coming momentarily to rest?
m

(b) What will be the kinetic energy of the cookie as it slides back through the position where the spring is unstretched?

a. energy available 20J
20J=10d+1/2 k d^2 k is given, calculate distance d.
b. KE=20-2*10d
c. solve for d1: 20-2*10dabove-1/2 k d1^2
d. you do it just the same...
