A 45kg sled is coasting with constant velocity at 3.0m/s over a patch of smooth and level ice. It enters a very rough section of ice that is 11m long in which the force of friction is 15N. With what speed will the sled emerge from the rough ice?

  • Physics -

    vf^2=Vi^2 + 2ad where a= force/mass, and it is negative here (it opposes motion). Solve for vf

  • Physics -

    a = F/m = 15N/45kg = 0.33 m/s^2 ,
    vf^2 = vi^2 + 2ad
    vf^2 = 3^2 + 2(0.33)(11)
    vf^2 = 16.3
    vf = 4m/s
    is that correct?

  • Physics -

    a=F/m=15N/45kg=0.33 m/s^2
    which in this case is Negative
    vf^2=vi^2+2ad
    vf^2=9+2(-.33)(11)
    vf^2=9+(-7.26)
    vf^2=1.74
    vf=sqrt(1.74)
    vf= 1.32 m/s
