What impulse should be applied to an object of mass m, having a known coefficient of friction u to get to a distance d ?
I still wasn't able to find an answer to this. Could you please share the solution? I need an "Idiot's solution" for this. I'm not experienced enough to find a formula by myself starting from your clues. I've searched the forums but they take into account other parameters. Thank you !
Here is a representation of what I need:
It's been a long time since I studied the principles of physics, sorry if I did not make myself clear in the first post.
I've tried formulas like:
1)m * a = u * m * g => a = u * g
2)a = v / t
3)d = v * t
So from these three equations, distance = u * g * t^2
The impulse p = m*v , so I get p= m * u * g * t
However, the time is not known and it is not important how long it takes for the object to get to target.
Does this formula (p= m * u * g * t) seem right? The mass, u, g are known, but what about time?
