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

A car traveling at 32 m/s flips over onto its roof and skids down the road. If the coefficient of friction between metal and the pavement is 0.42, calculate how far the car will travel before coming to a complete stop.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma, Force of Kinetic Friction= Coefficient of Friction x Normal Force

3. The attempt at a solution

The car's initial velocity is 32m/s and its final velocity is 0m/s. Thus V_{0}is 32m/s and V_{1}is 0m/s. Given mass, acceleration, or time the problem would be simple. But given only velocity and the coefficient of friction I'm not even sure if this problem is possible.

Help?
