A 0.5 kg object is given an initial velocity of 3 m/s after which it slides a distance of 8 m across a level floor. What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the object and the floor?

  1. Rayan

    average speed = (3+0)/2 = 1.5 m/s

    so t = 8/1.5 = 80/15 = 5.33 seconds sliding to a stop

    then acceleration a = (0-3)/5.33 = -.5625 m/s^2

    so now the physics
    F = m a
    -m g (mu) = m (-.5625)
    mu = .5625/9.81 = .0573

  2. Henry

    M*g = 0.5 * 9.8 = 4.9 N. = Wt. of object = Normal force(Fn).

    V^2 = Vo^2 + 2a*d.
    0 = 9 + 2a*8,
    a = -0.563 m/s^2.

    Fk = u*Fn = u*4.9 = 4.9u = Force of kinetic friction.

    Fap-Fk = M*a.
    0 - 4.9u = 0.5*(-0.563),
    u = 0.057.
