A baggage handler drops your 10 kg suitcase onto a conveyer belt running at 2 m/s. The materials are such that us= 0.5 and uk=0.3 [coefficients of static and kinetic friction]. How far is your suitcase dragged before it is riding smoothly on the belt?

I don't know how to set up the problem because I don't know how to define the force applied by the baggage handler. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance! =)
