(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Their is a 2.00 kg steel block on a steel table. What is the velocity of the block after moving 1.20 meters given that the string tension being pull on the block is 17.0 N and the coefficient of kinetic friction of dry steel on steel is .600.

2. Relevant equations

I don't really know what these would be for this problem.

3. The attempt at a solution

So far, i've figured that the minimum string tension to move the block is 15.7 N using the coefficient of static friction of dry steel on steel is 0.800. T = Mass * Static friction * gravity. T = (2.00) * (.800) * (9.8) = 15.68 ~ 15.7
