63. The initial and final kinetic energies are zero, and we set up energy conservation in the form of Eq. 8-33 (with W= 0) according to our assumptions. Certainly, it can only come to a permanent stop somewhere in the flat part, but the question is whether this occurs during its first pass through (going rightward) or its second pass through (going leftward) or its third pass through (going rightward again), and so on. If it occurs during its first pass through, then the thermal energy generated is ΔEth= fkdwhere d≤Landkkfmgμ=. If it occurs during its second pass through, then the total thermal energy isΔEth
