A mass m = 11.0 kg rests on a frictionless table and accelerated by a spring with spring constant k = 4979.0 N/m. The floor is frictionless except for a rough patch. For this rough path, the coefficient of friction is μk = 0.46. The mass leaves the spring at a speed v = 2.8 m/s.
The mass is measured to leave the rough spot with a final speed vf = 1.5 m/s.
In this new scenario, what would the coefficient of friction of the rough patch need to be changed to in order for the block to just barely make it through the rough patch?
