vf2=vi2+2ad -> (2.5)^2=0+2a(1.7) -> 6.25=3.4a -> a=1.83824 Then F - f=ma -> (12.5)(9.8)-kf (12.5)(9.8)=(12.5)1.83824 kf=0.8124

THHHAAANNNKKKKK YOOOOUUUU SOOOOO MMUUUUCCCCHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH but I just have one question, why in the first part where you used \[vf^2=vi^2+2d\] why do you put the initial velocity as zero and the final velocity as 2.5?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

vf2=vi2+2ad Because the wooden is not moving so the velocity equal -> 0 (First condition vi=0)

:D ok THANK YOU!
