The way I approached the problem I found acceleration using V^2=vo^2 + 2ax. Then I set uk*mg = ma. The masses cancel... so its uk*g = a. I keep getting the wrong answer. What am I doing wrong?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A hockey puck on a frozen pond with an initial speed of 22.3 m/s stops after sliding a distance of 249.3 m. Calculate the average value of the coefficient of kinetic friction between the puck and the ice.

2. Relevant equations

uk*m*g = ma

3. The attempt at a solution
