Kinematics/Dynamic Question!!

Homework Statement



A bartender slides a glass of beer down a bar with an initial velocity of 2m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction of the bar is 0.05 and the length of the bar is 3m and the height of the bar is 1m. The mass of the beer is 0.5kg. How far from the bar will the glass hit the ground?

Homework Equations




Not sure which equation to use.

The Attempt at a Solution



I tried to find out the frictional force and its 0.25N after drawing a free body diagram for the glass of beer. I named the distance we have to find from the bar when the glass hits the ground x. Therefore, the total distance travelled by the bar will be (3+x).

I'm stuck after that.

Thank you for anyone who can help me!!

Dynamic
You have initial velocity.
There is a force that changes this velocity.
Find the final velocity at the edge of the table.

Kinematic
Use projectile equations.
