**1. Homework Statement**

A bobsled (600kg) enters a straightaway at 19.2 m/s and travels 200m. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is .15, what is the velocity at the end of the straightaway?

**2. Homework Equations**

My friend asked me for help on this problem, but its been a while since ive taken physics. Can anyone point me to an equation that might help get us started?

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I know the force of kinetic friction will be 5880*.15= 882 and that vf^2 - vi^2 = 2a(x) is probably the equation to use, im just lost on how to turn that kinetic friction into acceleration so I can use it.
