Default finding the smallest distance a truck must go before a box resting on it slides?



The coefficent of static friction between the floor of a truck and a box resting on it is 0.30. The truck is traveling at 69.3 km/hr. What is the least distance in which the truck can stop and ensure that the box does not slide?
