This is just a revision question for an exam i have in a couple weeks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I think i kow the answer but just want to double check.

a curling stone is released with an instial speed of 3.1 m/s

the coefficent of sliding friction between the stone and ice is 0.017

What is the distance the stone will come to rest?

A 14m B 19m C 29m D 58m E Impossible to tell without mass

I believe it to be E

IF i did have the mass what equation would i need?

[tex]\mu[/tex][tex]_{}slide[/tex] * mg ??

Many thanks
