Homework Help: Physics Classical Mechanics

A block of mass m=2 kg is initially at rest on a horizontal surface. At time t=0, we begin pushing on it with a horizontal force that varies with time as F(t)=Beta t^2, where Beta = 1.0 N/s^2. We stop pushing at time t1, 5s [F(t)=0 for t>1].
(a) First, assume the surface is frictionless. What is the magnitude of the final momentum at t1=5s?
P final(t=t1)=
(b) lets now consider a new situation where the object is initially at rest on a rough surface. The coefficient of static friction is 0.2. What is the speed of the block at time t2=5s?
(c) What is the power P provided by the force F(t) at time t3=4s (in Watts) i the case where there is friction (part(b))?
Question No. 2 any ideas.
