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 tractortrailer 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.
