Here's the problem:

diameter = 3.45 cm

How far does the coin roll before coming to a stop?

How would I set this problem up? Thanks!

Remember

$$v = r \omega$$

$$a = r \alpha$$

ok, I converted 3.45 cm to m = .0345 m
then, I got the linear velocity = 11.4 x .0345 = .3933 m/s
next, I got the linear acceleration = -.96 x .0345 = -.03312 m/s^2

ok, I plug all of this into a kinematics equation and get 5.94 m, does this sound right? Thanks!
