A 180-kg crate is sitting on the flatbed of a moving truck. The coefficient of sliding friction between the crate and the truck bed is 0.30. Two taut cables are attached to either side of the crate. Each cable can exert a maximum horizontal force of 650 N either forward or backward if the crate begins to slide. If the truck stops in 1.8 s, what is the maximum speed the truck could have been moving without breaking the cables?
