physics

A hockey puck struck by a hockey stick is given an initial speed v0 in the positive x-direction. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the ice and the puck is μk.
(a) Obtain an expression for the acceleration of the puck. (Use the following as necessary: μk and g.)
a =

(b) Use the result of part (a) to obtain an expression for the distance d the puck slides. The answer should be in terms of the variables v0, μk, and g only.
d =

  1. a=Force/mass=mu*mg/m= mu*g in the direction opposite motion.

    vf^2=vo^2+2ad
    d= -vo^2/2a you finish it.
