**A puck, weighing 75KG(yes, 75kg) is launched from 0-20m/s in 4.4s. Determine the unbalanced force and acceleration.**

**Fnet=ma A=v/t**

**This PART was easy, A=20/4.4, A=4.55m/s^2. Fnet=75(4.55) Fnet=341.25N**

Its the next part that gets tricky...

The puck, traveling at a constant 20m/s approaches a 15deg incline hill with a frictional mu of 0.100. Determine the force of friction, how far up the hill it will travel before coming to a complete stop, acceleration and the applied force.

So what I did was first find the Fg which is 735N

Then I split it up into X and Y components, for the Y component I ended up with 710N because COS15(735N)=710N. This should also be the normal force (I'm just not sure if I found the right component/value for Fg) so then Ff=Fn(mu) Ff=710(0.100) Ff=71N

Since the Ff is 71N, and there is NO applied force pushing it UP the incline, I did 71/75=-0.95M/s^2 and have that as my acceleration value. Then I subbed it into the V2^2=V1^2+2ad, I ended up subbing in 0=(20)^2+2(-0.95)D 400=1.9D D=210m. Therefore distance before stopping is 210M. It seems off to me so any confirmation/help would be greatly appreciated.
