1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A resting hockey puck is hit with a force of 15.3 N. The frictional force slowing the puck down is 1.0 N. a) Find the net horizontal force acting on the puck while the stick is in contact with the puck. b) If the puck leaves the stick with a velocity of 45 m/s, how far will the puck travel in 3.0 s? 2. Relevant equations Fnet (h) = Fapplied + Ff a = F/m Δd = v1Δt + 1/2 aΔt2 3. The attempt at a solution a) Fnet (h) = Fapplied + Ff Fnet (h)= (15.3 N [forward]) + (1.0 N [backward ]) Fnet (h)= (15.3 N [forward]) + (-1.0 N [forward]) = 14.3 N [forward] Fnet (h) = 14 N [forward] c)m = 164 g = 0.164 kg a = F/m a = -1.0 N [forward] / 0.164 kg a= -6.1 m/s2 [forward] Δd = v1Δt + 1/2 aΔt2 Δd = (45 m/s) (3.0 s) + ½ (-6.1 m/s2) (3.0 s)2 Δd = 108 m (should I add a direction here, if yes then would it be 108 m [forward]?) The puck will travel 108 m in 3.0 s. Is this correct?
