A crate of mass 55.6 kg is being transported on the flatbed of a pickup truck. The coefficient of static friction between the crate and the trucks flatbed is 0.330, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.320.

(a) The truck accelerates forward on level ground. What is the maximum acceleration the truck can have so that the crate does not slide relative to the trucks flatbed?

  1. (a)
    ma=F(fr) = μ(s) •N= μ(s) •m•g,
    a= μ(s)•g,
    (b)
    ma1=F1(fr) = μ(k) •N= μ(k) •m•g,
    a1= μ(k)•g,
