## Homework Statement

A 16-kg sled is being pulled along the horizontal snow-covered

ground by a horizontal force of 24 N. Starting from rest, the sled attains

a speed of 2.0 m/s in 8.0 m. Find the coefficient of kinetic friction

between the runners of the sled and the snow.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have found the acceleration of the sled by using the v^2 = v

_{0}+2ax. So, 2^2 = 2(a)(8), which gives me 0.25 m/s^2. I also calculated the normal force. Since it is a horizontal plane, it would be (9.81)(16) = 156.96 N.

Not to sure how to get the μF

_{k}from here.
