1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 1100kg car is traveling at 24m/s before it hits a 18m patch of mud with a 1.7 x 10^4 net horizontal resistive force. What is the cars speed as it leaves the mud patch? 2. Relevant equations Change in Uint= fd KE= 1/2mv^2 W= Fd 3. The attempt at a solution 1/2mv^2 = f(mud on car)d 1/2(1100)v^2 = 1.7 x 10^4(18) V= 23.6 m/s I'm pretty sure this isn't correct, because the resistive force is too great to have the final velocity change only slightly. I feel like I might need to incorporate work or the initial velocity into my equation, but I don't really know how.
