A billiard ball that is initially at rest is given a sharp blow by a cue stick. The force is horizontal and is applied at a distance h = 2R/3 below the centerline, as shown in the figure below. The speed of the ball just after the blow is v0 and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the ball and the billiard table is muk
There is no "figure below" and there is also no question.
