A 20.00kg curling stone is released at the hog line and moves 28.35m [W] to sit on the button and score a point. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the stone and the ice is 0.0020000, what was the initial speed of the stone ?

So we know:

m=20.00kg

d=28.35m[W]

Fk=0.0020000

Vi=?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm stuck on what I have to find first to end up finding the velocity. Once I know what I need to find first I can figure it on from there. I am not asking for any answers, just what I have to find first. Any help is appreciated.
