Problem P. 4629. (April 2014)

P. 4629. An object is left to move along a horizontal surface, on which friction is not negligible. At one moment its kinetic energy is 900 J, and 2 s later it is only 400 J, while the object covers a distance of $\displaystyle \ell$.

$\displaystyle a)$ By what factor will the further distance until the object stops be greater than the distance $\displaystyle \ell$?

$\displaystyle b)$ How long does it take to cover this distance?
