In Fig, a runaway truck with failed brakes is moving downgrade at 160 km/h just before the driver steers the truck up a frictionless emergency escape ramp with an inclination of è = 11°. The truck's mass is 1.5 x 104 kg. (a) What minimum length L must the ramp have if the truck is to stop (momentarily) along it? (Assume the truck is a particle, and justify that assumption.) What is the minimum length L if (b) the truck's mass is decreased by 11% and (c) its speed is decreased by 11%?
