Parcel chutes are part of every distribution centre. When a parcel slides on this inclined plane and is decelerated at the end, according to calculations the following statements can be made:
1. The parcel takes 1.43 seconds to arrive at the end of the parcel chute.
2. During the abrupt deceleration at the end of the chute, also called shock/impact, almost 20 times the acceleration due to gravity, arithmetically 19.36 g, acts on the parcel.
