An air-track glider of mass
How large would the coefficient of static friction s have to be to keep the glider from springing back to the left when it stops instantaneously?
If the coefficient of static friction between the glider and the track is = 0.75, what is the maximum initial speed v1 that the glider can be given and still remain at rest after it stops instantaneously?
