## Homework Statement

A bug slides back and forth in a bowl 11cm deep, the bowl is frictionless except a 1.5cm patch at the *flat* bottom coefficient of friction = .61

## Homework Equations

W = f*d

r= 11cm

[tex]\mu=.61[/tex]

stickypatch=1.5cm

## The Attempt at a Solution

i can get the first part (its velocity right when it hits the patch [1.47m/s] afterwards I'm stuck i tried using Work = F*d but i get:

W = -.61(mass)(9.81) * .015m

how am i supposed to solve this without the required mass? i tried finding substitutes to put in for mass or to remove mass, but no luck.
