A car is going at a speed of 6m/s when it encouters a 15 m slope of angle $30 ^{\circ}$. The frictional coefficient between road and tyre is 0.5. The driver applies the brakes. The minimum speed of car with which he can reach the bottom is $(g=10 m/s^2)$

\[(a)\;4\;m/s \quad (b)\; 3\;m/s \quad (c)\; 8.45 \;m/s \quad (d)\;7.46\;m/s \]

1 Answer

acceleration down the slope
$a=g \sin \theta - \mu g \cos \theta$
$a=10 \sin 30-(0.5)(10) cos 30$
$a=0.67 m/s^2$
Minimum speed while reaching the bottom
$v=7.46 m/s$
Hence d is the correct answer
