A large box is loaded into the very back of a pickup truck and is not tied down. The truck then goes down the road at 20.0 m/s. The coefficient of static friction is 0.80 and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.45 between the box and the bed of the truck. What is the shortest distance that the truck can stop without the box sliding?
