Unformatted text preview: 1. A large truck is traveling is traveling at 60 miles per hour (1 mile = 5,280 feet) when the brakes are suddenly applied and the rear wheels lock. Due to friction between the tires and road, the vehicle decelerates at a constant 14.5 ft/sec 2 = 0.45g. Skidmarks are left on the road. a) Write equations for the truck velocity vs. time and position vs. time. Time t=0 corresponds to the start of the skidmarks. b) How far does the tractor-trailer travel after application of the brakes? (i.e. how long are the skidmarks?) c) How long does it take before the truck comes to a stop after braking? Skidmarks x 2. Problem #2.2.8 from Dynamics by Tongue and Sheppard 3.
