Physics

An engine block of mass M is on the flatbed of a pickup truck that is traveling in a straight line down a level road with an initial speed of 25 m/s. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the bed is μs = 0.566. Find the minimum distance in which the truck can come to a stop without the engine block sliding toward the cab in meters.
