A 1250 kg boat is traveling at 90 km/h when its engine is shut off. The magnitude of the frictional force fk between boat and water is proportional to the speed v of the boat. Thus, fk = 80v, where v is in meters per second and fk (the magnitude of the frictional force) is in newtons. Find the time required for the boat to slow down to 45 km/h.
