Homework Help: Frictional forcePlease help

  1. Nov 1, 2009 #1
    a hockey puck on a frozen pond is given an initial speed of 20.0 m/s.if the puck always remains on the ice and slides 115 m before coming to rest,determine the coefficient of friction between the puck and ice.

    I started solving the question by getting the acceleration (a=-1.8m/s^2) ,but I'm stuck to this point.
    Please help..Thank you

    1.) What is the definition of the coefficient of friction?
    2.) What is the relationship between acceleration and force?
