Finding the force of friction
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A 6.5 kg cart is pushed along a horizontal surface with a rightward force. After the cart is pushed a distance of 3.5 m starting from rest, its speed is 6.0 m/s. Find the force of friction acting on the cart.
2. Relevant equations
KE= 1/2(m)(v)^2 (?)
3. The attempt at a solution

Try to calculate the acceleration. You have an initial speed, a final speed and a distance.
