The wark dane by frictian( on level ground, N == mg) is Wnc = - fkX = -/lkmgx, where x is the distance slid across the rough level stretch. The energy principle; Equatian 8~5, relates these quantities: Wnc -/lkmgx = b.K + l:i.U =0 ~ mg(YA - YB).Thus x = (YA - YB)//lk =7.2 in/0.51= 14.1 far X2 < Xl. If the kinetic energy af an alpha particle at the nuclear surface is zero, K2 0, then its kinetic energy at same other paint is K1 = U2 - UI. Therefare, its speed is = VI = 1 2K ! = 2A
