SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters.
A crate rests on a truck which is traveling at speed V= 26 m/sec down a hill inclined at angle b= 8 degrees. The coefficient of friction between crate and truckbed is f= .50.
Find the shortest stopping distance such that the crate does not slide forward.
On the diagram of the crate shown on ATTACHMENT #1, show arrows for all forces existing on the crate as the truck slows down. Then see ATTACHMENT #2 for a diagram showing the existing forces ...
In a five step process, the problem is explained and solved.
