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

There is an object that is 10kg. This objects initial speed is 10 m/s. The friction working against the object is .1---What is the distance to when the object stops moving?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

u(k)= f(k)/N...The N, i think, is 100 because of the gravity (10) and the weight of the object (10). Then i had to multiply that by the U(k), (.1), which gave me 10. Then i used f=ma. The mass is 10 kg and the force is 10, which gave me the acceleration of 100 m/s, which does not make sense.

I did not know where to go from there.
