Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Tim on Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 10:01pm.

An ice skater of mass m is given a shove on a frozen pond. After the shove she has a speed of 2m/s. Assuming that the only horizontal force that acts on her is a slight frictional force between the blades of the skates and the ice:

a.) Identify the horizontal force and two vertical forces that act on her.

b.) Use the work-energy theorem to find the distance the skater moves before coming to rest. Assume that the coefficient of kinetic friction between the blades of the skates and ice is .12
