Question

A semi-trailer is coasting downhill along a mountain highway when its brakes fail. The driver pulls onto a runaway truck ramp that is inclined at an angle of 11.0° above the horizontal. The semi-trailer coasts to a stop after traveling 140 m along the ramp. What was the truck's initial speed? Neglect air resistance and friction.
