A particle moves on a rough horizontal ground with some initial velocity $V_0$. If $\large\frac{3}{4}$th of its kinetic energy is lost in friction in time $t_0$ the coefficient of friction is

\[(a)\;\frac{v_0}{2gt_0} \quad (b)\;\frac{v_0}{4gt_0} \quad (c)\;\frac{3v_0}{4gt_0} \quad (d)\;\frac{v_0}{gt_0} \]

Can you answer this question?

If energy becomes $\large\frac{1}{4}$ th .
$\large\frac{3}{4}$ th energy is lost, Velocity becomes $\large\frac{v_0}{2}$ under retardation $\mu g$
$\large\frac{v_0}{2}$$=v_0-\mu g t_0$
Hence a is the correct answer.
