Ph 111 NAME ____RWB October 10, 2008 Quiz 3 Solutions Please use the value of 9.8 m/s 2 for the acceleration of gravity, and give your numerical answers to at least three significant figures. A crate with a mass of m = 10 kg is sliding at a constant speed v 1 along a frictionless horizontal table, when it encounters a friction patch, with coefficient of kinetic friction μ k = 0.4 . After the crate has slid for a distance d = 8 m, its speed is v 2 = 11 m/s.
