Shuffleboard

Shuffleboard is a game played with wooden disks on a wooden surface. You give the disks an initial horizontal velocity and try to get them to stop at a certain point. A disk and the surface have a coefficient of kinetic friction equal to \(0.1\). What is the initial velocity in m/s you must give the disk to have it stop \(5~\mbox{m}\) away from its launch point?

Details and assumptions

  • The acceleration of gravity is \(-9.8~\mbox{m/s}^2\).
