    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A baseball player slides into 3rd base with an intitial speed of 3.6 m/sec. If coefficient of kinetic friction between the player and the ground is 0.41, how far does the player go before rest?

    2. Relevant equations

    Fx= -fk= ma
    fk= mu sub k *N
