A flatbed truck is carrying a 2610kg crate of heavy machinery. if the coefficient of static friction between the crate and the bed of the truck is 0.530, what is the maximum rate(in meters/second^2) that the driver can decelerate when coming to a stop in order to avoid cruhing the cab of the truck with the crate
