(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A block pushed along the floor with velocity V0 slides a distance D after the pushing force is removed.

If the mass of the block is doubled but its initial velocity is not changed, what distance does the block slide before stopping? Express your answer in terms of D.

2. Relevant equations

F = ma

3. The attempt at a solution

My only problem with this question, is that I simply dont know how to relate force, velocity and distance into an equation. Ive tried rearranging newtons, but I can seem to get the right ratio. Thanks for you time.
