Sliding Block Distance

APPH12-CGEJYG

A block of mass $m$ is sliding along a surface with a coefficient of friction $\mu_k$. The block has a velocity of $v_0$. A block of mass $2m$ slides along the same surface also with $\mu_k$ at $v_0$.

If both blocks come to a stop along the surface due to friction only, what conclusions can be drawn?

A

The larger block traveled farther.

B

The smaller block traveled farther.

C

Both blocks traveled the same distance.

D

Not enough information was given to draw conclusions.
