Sliding Block Friction Force

APPH12-JJYZ9G

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 force of friction is greater on the larger block.

B

The force of friction is greater on the smaller block.

C

Both blocks experience the same force of friction.

D

Not enough information was given to draw conclusions.
