4. Forces on a sliding box

1. a box of mass 12 kg slides at a speed of 10 m/s acros a smooth level floor, where it enters a rough portion 3.0 m in length. In the rough portion, the box experiences a horizontal friction force of 72N. a) how much work is done by the frictional force? b) what is the velocity of the box...
