Answer to Question #62208 in Mechanics | Relativity for Jenny
While curling, you push a rock for 1.70 m and release it when it has a speed of 1.70 m/s. It continues to slide at constant speed for 0.700 s and then hits a rough patch of ice. It finally comes to rest 9.20 m from where it was released.
What was the curling rock's magnitude of acceleration after it hit the patch of rough ice?
