Statement of a problem № 10191


A 5.9-kg block of ice at -1.5 °C slides on a horizontal surface with a coefficient of kinetic friction equal to 0.069. The initial speed of the block is 7.1 m/s and its final speed is 5.3 m/s. Assuming that all the energy dissipated by kinetic friction goes into melting a small mass m of the ice, and that the rest of the ice block remains at -1.5 °C, determine the value of m?
