A $40\,kg$ box rests on the horizontal floor of a truck which is initially at rest on a horizontal road. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the floor and the box is $0.2$. The truck at time $t = 0$ accelerates constantly at $5\,m{\text{ }}{s^{ - 2}}$ and the box is $6m$ away from the rear opening of the truck. Find the time $t$ when the box just falls off the floor of the truck.
