Question

A truck collides with a car, and during the collision, the net force on each vehicle is essentially the force exerted by the other. Suppose the mass of the car is $550 \mathrm{~kg}$, the mass of the truck is $2200 \mathrm{~kg}$, and the magnitude of the truck's acceleration is $10 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^2$. Find the magnitude of the car's acceleration.

Step 1

1 of 5**We are given the data:**

$m_1=550\hspace{1mm}\text{kg}$ - mass of the car;

$m_2=2200\hspace{1mm}\text{kg}$ - mass of the truck;

$a_2=10\hspace{1mm}\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}^2}$ - acceleration of the truck;

We need to find:

- $a_1$ - the acceleration of the car
