  Someone at the other end of the table asks you to pass the salt while you are eating lunch in the Lair.  Feeling adventurous, you slide the 50g salt shaker in their direction, giving it an initial speed of 1.15 m/s.  If the shaker comes to rest ion 0.840m, what is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the shaker and the table?

A 1.84kg bag of clothes pins hangs in the middle of a clothesline, causing it to sag by an angle q= 3.50o.  Find the tension in the clothesline.
