A car of mass m and a truck of mass 2m, both traveling at the same speed v, have a head-on collision. During the collision the truck undergoes an average deceleration a.
a. What deceleration does the car undergo?
b. calculate the car’s deceleration during the collision if its mass is 970 kg and the truck’s average deceleration was -36 m/s^2
c. Calculate the average force on the car during collision.
d. If you stimulate this collision with smaller carts in the lab, each with a force sensor at it ‘s “front bumper”, how will the force readings for both compare during the collision?
