3. In the figure, a runaway truck with failed brakes is moving downgrade at 107 km/h just before the driver steers the truck up a frictionless emergency escape ramp with an inclination of θ = 14°. The truck's mass is 1.4 × 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
