Inclination angle of 38.0 degrees with respect to the horizontal. Suppose a truck on a street, for the truck to remain at rest, a static friction must exist. If an additional force with a magnitude equal to one-fourth the weight of the truck is applied uphill in order to hold the truck in place, what is the coefficient of static-friction?
