calculate the friction force of an object? if weight=19600,vi=30ms-1,vf=0ms-1 and S=100m.

  • physics -

    If it is sliding to a stop along a horizontal surface, the initial kinetic energy equals the work done against friction. I will assume the weight is in Newtons

    (M/2)Vi^2 = Ff*S

    M = (19600 N)/g = 2000 kg

    Ff = friction force = 1000*900/100
    = 9000 N
