Answer:68.46 m.Explanation:Given,

coefficient of friction,μ = 0.67

speed of truck, v = 30 m/s

distance travel by the truck to stop = ?

Now,

Calculation of acceleration

we know,

f = m a

and also

f = μ N = μ mg

Equating both the forces equation

m a = μ mg

a = μ g

a = 0.67 x 9.81

a = 6.57 m/s²

Now, using equation of kinematics

v² = u² + 2 a s

0 = 30² – 2 x 6.57 x s

s = 68.46 m

Hence, the minimum distance travel by the truck is equal to

68.46 m.
