Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0taking your question at face value, velocity goes like this after each plank \(v = v_0 \to v = v_o {n1 \over n} \to v = v_o ({n1 \over n})^2 \to v = v_o({n1 \over n})^3 \to \dots \), ie there is no point at which v = 0, it is asymptotic but never gets to zero what you might actually have in mind is that \(v = v_0 \to v = v_o  {v_o \over n} \to v = v_o  {v_o \over n}  {v_o \over n} \to v = v_o  {v_o \over n}  {v_o \over n}  {v_o \over n} \to \dots\) which is a much simpler idea as this is \(v = v_0 \to v = v_o  v_o{1 \over n} \to v = v_o  v_o{2 \over n} \to v = v_o  v_o{3 \over n} \to \dots\) you might wish to link / scan the actual question :p
