A crate is being transported on a flatbed truck. The coefficient of static friction between the crate and the bed is 0.470. What is the minimum stopping distance if the truck, traveling at 70 km/h, is to decelerate uniformly and the crate is not to slide forward on the bed?
Vi^2 - Vo^2 = 2ad
The Attempt at a Solution
I found the acceleration ,
Us•mg=ma (The mass basically cancels out here)
Us•g = a
4.606 = a
To find the distance, I figured to use Vi^2 - Vo^2 = 2ad , due to not having time . However , how do you find the final velocity of the initial velocity is 70 km/h .
I’m stumped here
