An amusement park is planning on constructing a new ride and needs help with all the planning. The track begins at a height of 60 meters and slopes downward at a constant angle. The coefficient of rolling friction for the wheels of the roller coaster is 0.05. If the park wants the ride to have a final velocity of at least 25 m/s at its lowest point, what should the minimum angle of slope be?
