1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations d = v1(t) + ½ a (t)^2 Newtons second Law 3. The attempt at a solution ok, so i know that once the puck leaves the stick, the only force acting on it would be the frictional force (1.0 N). From reading other forums, i guess i need to calculate the acceleration first, then use the acceleration to calculate the distance travelled in 3.0 s. i just dont know what numbers and formulas to use, to solve for the distance, im really confused :P anyhelp would be appreciated. thanks.
