A wooden crate sits on the floor of a flatbed truck that is initially at rest, and the coefficient of static friction between the crate and the floor of the truck is 0.25. The driver of the truck wants to accelerate to a velocity of 20 m/s within 4.0 s. If he does so, will the crate slide off the back of the truck?
