I am having trouble understanding the link between velocity and static friction. Specifically how the force "locks down" or instantaneously stops an object before velocity is zero, after some time of kinetic friction slowing the object down.
In physics class, we were handed some problems to solve in which one of them was a hockey puck (117 grams) launched up an 34 degrees metal ramp. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the hockey puck and the metal ramp were $μ_s = 0,67$ and $μ_k = 0,22$. The puck's initial speed was $3,8 m/s$. What vertical height did the puck reach above its starting point?
I don't know how to determine the lowest speed of the puck before the static friction "locks" it to the metal surface.
Edit: Apologize if this is the wrong forum to post this kind of physics/math question. Not sure where it belongs. Thanks for reading!
