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

At a local hockey rink, a puck with a mass of .12kg is given an initial speed of 5.3m/s. If the coefficient of friction is .11, what distance does the puck slide before coming to rest?

2. Relevant equations

F(net)=ma, F(friction)=Coeff. x F(normal)

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont know where to start.. You cant find the acceleration because we dont know the time or distance, so how do you get the net force? If i could get the acceleration i could get the net force and then the distance. Im so lost..
