A 62-kg cross-country skier glides over snow as in the figure below. The coefficient of friction between skis and snow is 0.16. Assume all the snow beneath her skis is at 0°C and that all the internal energy generated by friction is added to snow, which sticks to her skis until it melts. How far would she have to ski to melt 2.5 kg of snow?
Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect.
Determine the force of friction and require the force of friction to do the work that melts the ice. m
