2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

for part a) i put mdv/dt = -F(brake) - kv

but is lost for what to put in for part b), help?
2. Re: Newton Law Question help

What are the conditions at the beginning of the braking? Just write those.

Also, k is the same as last time, and you have a value for m and F(brake), which solves the rest of the question.
