Distance and time required to stop a sliding unit?

  1. Dec 6, 2009 #1
    A very heavy unit sitting on a plane at 1degree angle.... i checked that with friction only the unit will stop sliding

    Vi = initial Velocity is 10m/hr
    Vf = Final velocity is 0 (as it has stopped)
    the question is hom much distance will it cover until stopping completely and how long will it take to stop.

    Can anyone suggest a Software to model this?!?

    thnx

    Any good differential equation slover should do the job.
